Labour leader Ed Miliband has shuffled the pack of his Shadow Cabinet — and given a spot to Eastwood MP Gloria De Piero.

On a day of political movements on both sides of the house, former journalist Ms De Piero was given the portfolio as the new Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities.

Ms de Piero is the former political editor of GMTV, and former Shadow Minister for Crime Prevention.

She was elected to the Ashfield seat in 2010 by a narrow margin.

Ms de Piero replaces Yvette Cooper as the Minister with the Women and Equalities brief.
