Labour reshuffle: Ken Livingstone on Hilary Benn and Maria Eagle

Former London Mayor Ken Livingstone has suggested that Jeremy Corbyn may move shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn as part of a reshuffle of the shadow cabinet.

Mr Benn opposed his party's leader in December to back UK air strikes in Syria.

"Is it best to have Hilary [Benn] in a job where he's going to disagree with Jeremy [Corbyn] again and again or should he be in one like Environment where they're in complete agreement?", Mr Livingstone told BBC News.

However Mr Livingstone refused to be drawn on the future of shadow defence minister Maria Eagle.
