Paul Farrelly
Labour Party

The Mail on Sunday reported Paul Farrelly, the MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, "launched a foul-mouthed tirade" at fellow Labour MP James Frith.

Labour said it would be launching an investigation after it received "a number of complaints".

Mr Farrelly said the Mail on Sunday's story "seems to boil down to something about queue-pushing in Commons vote last week, and I have no idea what that's about".

Young voter surge may have caused Conservative defeats

A surge of young voters is "highly likely" to have caused the Conservative defeats in the Newcastle-under-Lyme and Crewe and Nantwich seats at the last general election - according to BBC research.

Analysis of data obtained under the Freedom of Information Act suggests the Conservatives may have been denied an overall majority by the hundreds of thousands of young voters who used the government's online system to join the electoral register after the election was called.

The research suggests the Conservatives might also have won the Kensington, Perth & North Perthshire, Dudley North and Canterbury seats - which were all lost by fewer than 200 votes.
