Munroe Bergdorf: Labour LGBT adviser quits over 'online abuse'
Transgender model Munroe Bergdorf has stepped down from her role as an LGBT adviser to a Labour MP - after just over a week in the job.
She says her decision is down to "endless attacks on her character" and "online abuse".
"I don't want to stand in the way of the board serving as a positive catalyst for change within the LGBT communities," she added.
The model previously apologised for "offensive" comments she'd posted.
