Labour MP Emily Thornberry: 'I got it wrong over tweet'

Labour MP Emily Thornberry has apologised for ''upsetting or insulting'' anyone with a tweet she sent during by-election campaigning in Rochester.

She sent a picture showing a terraced house with three England flags and a white van parked outside, which drew the accusation of ''snobbery'' from other politicians.

She has since resigned from the Labour front bench.

Speaking to reporters outside her home, Emily Thornberry admitted to making ''a mistake'' and said she was getting on with her work as an MP.
