Corbyn: UK parliament should not block Indyref2

Jeremy Corbyn has said the UK parliament should not block a second Scottish independence vote - but he does not think "it is a good idea".

He was speaking after shadow chancellor John McDonnell suggested the party would not oppose a referendum.

The official policy of Scottish Labour is still to oppose such a vote.

The Labour leader said: "It's not up to parliament to block it but it's up to parliament to make a point about whether it's a good idea or not."
