She said: “It is a huge honour and privilege to become Labour MEP for the Eastern Region.
“After the tremendous disappointment of the Brexit vote, in many ways this is a strange time to be entering the European Parliament. However there is an important job to be done. As your MEP, I will stand up for progressive values, I will work to get the best deal we can for the East of England, particularly when it comes to protecting jobs, the economy and living standards in our region.
“I pay tribute to my friend and colleague Richard Howitt who I am replacing. l know I have big shoes to fill.”
