Union boss: Owen Smith offering 'copycat policies'

Labour leadership hopeful Owen Smith has been accused of offering "copycat" policies in his attempts to draw supporters away from Jeremy Corbyn.

In his latest pitch, Mr Smith said greater equality needed to be at the heart of Labour's "mission for Britain".

But Corbyn supporter Manuel Cortes, the general secretary of the Transport Salaried Staffs' Association trade union, accused Mr Smith of offering ideas which were far less ambitious than those of the Labour leader.
