Great Yarmouth constituency Labour party (CLP) overwhelmingly voted for Jeremy Corbyn in a leadership nomination meeting.

Of those present last Saturday, 25 voted for Mr Corbyn, one voted for Owen Smith and there were two spoilt ballots.

The chairman of the CLP said that there was a mix of new young members and older members, and councillors.

The CLP also voted for Mr Corbyn this time last year.
