Jeremy Corbyn has been suspended from the Labour Party.

The former party leader has been suspended over his reaction to the Equality and Human Rights Commission's report into anti-semitism during his leadership, which was released on Thursday.

The investigation found the party committed unlawful acts of harassment and discrimination.

In response, Corbyn said Jewish Labour members were right to expect the party to deal with anti-semitism "and I regret that it took longer to deliver that change than it should".

However he also added "the scale of the problem was also dramatically overstated for political reasons by our opponents inside and outside the party".

Current Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s findings were a "day of shame" for the party and he was "truly sorry".
