Rotherham MP Sarah Champion attacked Government inaction over the Gaza crisis at a meeting with constituents.

More than 300 people have backed the MP’s call for ministers to set out plans to restore peace to the region, and she said it was a major issue for the town’s residents.

She said: “I have been shocked and dismayed at the increasingly disproportionate response by Israel over their perceived threat of Palestinians in Gaza. The scale of civilian casualties since the start of this war demonstrates the need for an immediate and lasting solution to this crisis.”
