More than 25,000 people have signed a petition to deselect Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford MP Yvette Cooper.

The petition accuses Ms Cooper of failing to represent her constituents, and calls for her to step down as MP.

Many of those who have signed the petition left messages of dissatisfaction with the politician.

It is not clear how many of the signees live in Ms Cooper's constituency.

Richard Hampshire, who launched the petition three months ago, said: "The referendum in our constituency was a staggering 70 to 30 in leave's favour and all Yvette Cooper has done is try to block and frustrate at every opportunity.

"Now she is trying to force no deal off the table - this is totally unacceptable.

"We had a democratic vote and we wish it be respected."

Voters in the Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford constituency voted 69.29 per cent to leave in the 2016 referendum.

Pro-remain Labour MP Yvette Cooper has successfully forced a 'no deal' Brexit off the table after her legislation to extend Article 50 in a bid to block a no deal Brexit has received royal assent and has now become law.
