Labour leader celebrates by-election win with Kim Leadbeater in Cleckheaton
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has visited Batley and Spen to congratulate Kim Leadbeater on becoming the constituency's new MP.
Sir Keir and Ms Leadbeater met with Labour supporters for a celebration in Cleckheaton earlier today, following her victory in yesterday's by-election.
In a close-run contest, Ms Leadbeater held off the challenge of the Conservatives' Ryan Stephenson, winning by a slim majority of 323 votes.
Her election means Batley and Spen remains a Labour seat, as it has been since 1997.
Here is a selection of photos from earlier today in Cleckheaton.
