Mr Coyne, who is seen as the anti-Jeremy Corbyn candidate, has been suspended as West Midlands regional secretary pending an investigation.

He is not thought to have been suspended as a union member.

Mr Coyne's campaign was recently warned by the union's acting general secretary that some of his campaign literature contained potentially defamatory statements about Mr McCluskey.
