Speaking after the announcement, Mr Evans said: ‘I am absolutely delighted to be joining Labour’s shadow environment team. The department has a brief which spreads far and wide covering everything from dangerous dogs to flooding and I am looking forward to holding the Tory-led government to account

Ms Creagh added: ‘I am delighted to welcome Chris to Labour’s Environment team at such an important time.  Chris will be helping to lead our fight back across the UK and holding this incompetent, out of touch government to account.

‘The country needs a government that is on their side, which helps promote green growth and jobs in our cities and rural communities, and protects the quality of community life.’
