Labour's Tom Watson partied into the early hours at Glastonbury Festival as the party faced a leadership coup


Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson partied into the early hours of Sunday morning at Glastonbury Festival, as the Labour party faced a leadership coup.

Watson documented his evening with a series of photos and videos on Snapchat - from the moment he cracked open a bottle of Queen of Diamonds craft ale at 4pm, until he wrapped the night up at a silent disco just before dawn.

Bravely donning a pair of white trousers and muddy wellies, the West Bromwich East MP snapped his way through a Tom Robinson gig in the Left Field tent, as well as Adele's headline act.

As the hours ticked by, Watson shared a clip of him singing along to perfomances and ended the night on a high at a silent disco, apparently unaware of the drama unfolding in the Labour party.

While the deputy leader was living it up on Worthy farm, shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn was sacked by Jeremy Corbyn, shadow health secretary Heidi Alexander resigned and several more members of the shadow cabinet were rumoured to quit.
