Labour MP Kate Osamor has quit the party's shadow cabinet to "support my family" amid a row following her son's drug conviction.

Ms Osamor, the party's shadow international development secretary, was accused of misleading the public over her son's conviction, and accused of verbally abusing a journalist from The Times.

Her son Ishmael, 29, works in her parliamentary office as a senior communications officer.

In October, he was given a community sentence after being caught with drugs worth £2,500 at the Bestival music festival, at the Lulworth Estate in Dorset, last year.

Ms Osamor, who has represented the Edmonton constituency in north London since May 2015, posted a statement on Twitter announcing she was quitting her shadow role.


The 50-year-old MP wrote to her 24,000 followers: "I am resigning my position as Shadow International Development Secretary to concentrate on supporting my family through the difficult time we have been experiencing.

"I remain fully committed to our programme for creating a society that works for the many, not the privileged few, and will continue to campaign for this from the backbenches."
