THE entire leadership of a constituency Labour Party (CLP) in Sussex has resigned in a bitter row over allegations of transphobia.

The resignation of all six members of the Bexhill & Battle Labour Party executive committee was confirmed in a letter seen by the Star.

It was also sent to local party members and the party’s south-eastern regional office.
