Jeremy Corbyn addresses Parliament Square refugee rally

Jeremy Corbyn said he was "shocked beyond appalled" over some media coverage about refugees.

In his one of his first speeches since being elected Labour leader on Saturday, he addressed a rally about rights for refugees held in Parliament Square, Westminster.

He claimed "a lot of politicians had rediscovered their principles, their principles of humanity" over the refugees arriving in Europe in recent weeks.

Mr Corbyn called on people to open their hearts, minds and attitudes "towards people who are desperate".
