A Jewish Labour MP who criticised Jeremy Corbyn has revealed that she received  more than 20,000 pieces of abuse in just 12 hours.

Ruth Smeeth, the Labour MP for Stoke-on-Trent, said Jeremy Corbyn should be "naming and shaming" supporters who are attacking moderate Labour MPs "in his name".


Speaking to the BBC this morning the MP said: "Since the end of June I have received somewhere in the region of 25,000 pieces of abuse. 

"I got 20,000 pieces of abuse within 12 hours and once it starts on social media it keeps going."
