A Labour MP has quit the parliamentary women and equalities committee after a series of homophobic and sexist remarks made a decade ago were published by the Guido Fawkes website.

One of Jared O'Mara's constituents, Sophie Evans, who met him in March 2017, a few months before he was elected, told Daily Politics presenter Jo Coburn that the Sheffield Hallam MP used abusive and sexist language to her and her friend.
