Jared O’Mara was suspended by the Labour Party in October

A Labour MP who was suspended over alleged misogynistic and homophobic comments has resigned from the party.

Jared O’Mara was suspended in October over a series of online posts and claims he verbally abused a woman.

He was reinstated on Tuesday with party officials saying he should attend training and be given a formal warning.

Mr O’Mara announced his resignation on his website claiming he had not been “listened to or been given a fair investigation” by the Labour Party.
