Death threats shadow minister Pat Glass will not stand again as MP


A pro-Europe Labour shadow minister who had death threats made against her has said she will not stand again as an MP.

Pat Glass did not attend the referendum count after police received four threats about the North West Durham MP, who was promoted on Monday from shadow Europe minister to shadow education minister.

She has written to the chairman of her constituency Labour Party, explaining that she found the last six months "very, very difficult" and described the referendum as "bruising".
