Jeremy Corbyn: 'British Irish conference a good idea'

Jeremy Corbyn has said he believes convening the British Irish Intergovernmental Conference (BIIC) is a good idea.

He told the BBC: "The British and Irish governments met many times during the last impasse - it seems to me a sensible way forward."

Mr Corbyn made the comments during his first visit to Northern Ireland since becoming leader of the Labour Party.
