Labour’s Andy Burnham seeks votes in town

Labour leadership contender Andy Burnham is heading to Ipswich tomorrow in a bid to pick up more votes in the battle to become the new leader of his party.
Mr Burnham was the early front-runner in the battle to replace Ed Miliband, but over recent weeks he has apparently been eclipsed by left-winger Jeremy Corbyn.
He will be meeting Labour members at a meeting at the Town Hall late tomorrow afternoon.
Voting for the new leader has already begun and continues until September 10. The new leader will be formally announced two days later.
