Batley and Spen: New MP Kim Leadbeater asked about Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer

Labour’s newest MP has been asked whether leader Sir Keir Starmer was more of an “asset or a problem” in the Batley and Spen by-election.

Kim Leadbeater – whose sister previously held the seat before her murder – won the constituency by a narrow margin.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, Ms Leadbeater said that most of the conversations on the campaign trail were about local issues and not the Labour leadership.
