Jeremy Corbyn came under fire from both leave and remain supporters in his own party today as Labour lost scores of council seats.
The party failed to gain votes from leavers, due to its perceived blocking of Brexit, or from remainers, due to its reluctance to back a second referendum.
By 10am this morning, Labour had lost three councils and nearly 80 seats nationwide.
MP for Redcar Anna Turley tweeted: 'Stand in the middle of the road and you get run over in both directions.'
