Corbyn attends Stop the War dinner despite criticism

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has addressed a fund-raising dinner for the Stop the War coalition, despite calls from some of his MPs not to attend.

Mr Corbyn said the group was a "vital force" and "one of the most important democratic campaigns of modern times", which had brought "hundreds of thousands of people" to protests.

Campaigner Andrew Murray is replacing Mr Corbyn as Stop the War chairman.

He described the Labour leader as part of the campaign's backbone.

Carole Walker reports.
