Labour leadership contenders

The event at which Labour announces its new leader has been cancelled because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Instead of holding a special conference in London on 4 April, the party will now put on a “scaled-back event” on that day.

Rebecca Long-Bailey, Lisa Nandy and Sir Keir Starmer are the three candidates vying to replace Jeremy Corbyn.

The Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and Welsh Labour have all cancelled their spring conferences.
