BBC News - Geoff Hoon may face no confidence vote

Former minister Geoff Hoon could face a vote of no confidence from his constituency, following his call for a ballot on Gordon Brown's leadership.

Following a meeting of the Labour Party members in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, Mr Hoon told the BBC he was not "carried aloft like a conquering hero".

He said while he faced criticism, he also had some supportive comments.

The BBC understands that some activists are considering tabling a motion of no confidence in him as their MP.

They think he had not apologised sufficiently tonight for his role in potentially destabilising Gordon Brown's leadership of the Labour Party, in the run-up to the forthcoming general election.

Mr Hoon told Friday night's meeting he was remaining as the candidate for the next election.
