Corbyn 'regrets Eagle's language'

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he "regrets" language used by Angela Eagle - who had challenged him for the leadership - when she claimed he had allowed a "permissive environment" in which she was subject to threats.

Ms Eagle told the Telegraph Mr Corbyn had been "stirring" and should be held to account.

But the Labour leader said he had made it "absolutely clear" that abusive language had "absolutely no place in our political discourse".
