Labour's South Shields branch suspended until at least January 2017

The Labour Party has suspended its South Shields branch over allegations of bullying and intimidation.

A preliminary investigation found evidence of a "genuine problem" within the branch and the suspension will remain in place until January 2017 at the earliest.

The Labour Party has been forced to suspend a large number of members, councillors and even one of their MPs in recent months for various reasons including bullying, anti semitism, fraud and paedophilia.
