Sister of murdered MP holds Batley and Spen for Labour in shock by-election
The Metro says: Kim Leadbeater, who is the sister of murdered MP Jo Cox, has pulled off a surprise victory after one of the most bitterly fought parliamentary battles in recent years.
The campaign was marred by claims of dirty tricks, intimidation including assaults, fake leaflets, dog-whistle racism and homophobia, prompting calls for police and election officials to intervene.
Ms Leadbeater said: ‘I’m absolutely delighted that the people of Batley and Spen have rejected division and they’ve voted for hope.’
