Jamie Reed finally resigns - by election will be on 23rd February

Jamie Reed, who was MP for Copeland from 2005 until today, and Tristam Hunt who had been MP for Stoke-on-Trent Central, both resigned from parliament today.

Reed had announced before Christmas that he planned to go at the end of January but resigned with Hunt today instead so that the two elections can be held together.

Labour says that it will "move the writ" for the two by-elections on Monday so that they can take place on 23rd February.
