Jeremy Corbyn's new shadow Education Secretary has resigned, just two days after she was appointed to the position.
Pat Glass issued a statement saying the role had been her "dream job", but described the current situation within the Labour party as "untenable".
The former LEA advisor was promoted to replace Lucy Powell on Monday. Ms Powell had herself said Mr Corbyn's position was "untenable", though she said the leader was "decent, principled and kind".
Ms Glass becomes the first member of Mr Corbyn's new-look Shadow Cabinet to stand down themselves.
The Labour leader lost a vote of no confidence among the Parliamentary Labour Party on Tuesday by 172 votes to 40.
