()
The vote follows over 20 members of the Shadow cabinet resigning blaming Mr Corbyn's performance leading up to last Thursday's referendum on the UK's membership on the European Union (EU). The Labour party had campaigned for the UK to remain in the EU.

During the vote 172 Labour MPs voted in favour of the motion, while 40 voted against it. Four ballots were spoilt, and thirteen MPs chose not to vote.

Following the vote, Mr Corbyn refused to resign, saying he was elected leader "by 60% of Labour members and supporters, and I will not betray them by resigning." He also stated the vote was not binding.

After the referendum last Thursday the UK's Prime Minister, David Cameron, also announced his intention to resign by October.
