He vowed to appeal the verdict and continued: “While the trial is ongoing, I don’t think it would normally be appropriate to resign.

“Due to long delays in the legal process, however, my constituents have been without visible parliamentary representation for a year.”

He continued: “I have therefore unfortunately come to the conclusion that it is intolerable for voters to go years without an MP to reinforce their voice in Parliament.”

Khan said his resignation allows him to focus on clearing his name.

His resignation will lead to a by-election in his Red Wall seat in the coming weeks.
