    Labour members have streamed out of the conference centre in Liverpoool now so we're wrapping up our coverage of Jeremy Corbyn's speech.

    But you can continue to follow reaction on BBC News on TV, radio and online.

    Here are the highlights of the address.

    • Labour was ready for government, Mr Corbyn said, as he pledged to rebuild Britain and end the "greed is good" culture
    • He said Labour would back a Brexit deal which kept the UK in a customs union and avoided a hard Irish border but, as it stood, would vote down Theresa May's plans and urged her to make way
    • Among policy announcements, he said a future Labour government would expand free childcareand create 400,000 new "green" skilled jobs with investment in fresh wind farms and insulation for homes.

    Pressed by Politics Live presenter Jo Coburn on how he would vote if another Brexit referendum did take place, shadow chancellor John McDonnell says "well I campaigned for remain, but we'd have to see the circumstances at the time".

    He says it would be "a miracle" if Theresa May secured a good deal for Britain which Labour could support, and his party would "undoubtedly" do a better job.

    Asked whether he agreed with Labour MP Laura Smith that a general strike was needed to bring down the government unless there is a general election, he suggests the government "is going to fall apart anyway and we'll get into power with a decent majority. We'll be able to transform people's lives."

    On a lighter note, former Labour adviser Ayesha Hazarika says the battle for both main parties to provide a clear, agreed stance on Brexit has become "The Great British Fudge Off" which is highly confusing for people.

  3. John McDonnell: 'The Tories hate each other more than us right now'

    Reaction to Labour leader's speech

    Speaking to Jo Coburn on Politics Live, Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell says the Tories are too divided to negotiate a Brexit deal and Labour could be in power within the year

    "The Tories hate each other more than they hate us at the moment".

    The government, he says, have set themselves the means by which a proposed deal will be tested through their continuous promises of prosperity to the nation, but he does not think they will secure a solid deal like they promised.

  5. Jeremy Corbyn's speech 'tremendously unifying'

    Labour leader's speech reaction

    Novara Media journalist Ash Sarkar says Jeremy Corbyn's speech has "sent out a strong signal" that the Labour Party have "done some thinking".

    "It was a tremendously unifying policy platform."

  7. Jeremy Corbyn: 'We must bring our country together again'

    Labour leader's speech

    Ending his speech, Jeremy Corbyn says Labour "must speak for the people to whom Theresa May promised so much but has delivered so little".

    He calls on people to allow Labour to invest in Britain after years of austerity and neglect and "bring our country together after a decade of division".

    The Labour leader says that "no one must be left behind", neither individuals or communities.

    He says Labour are confident in their plans and ideas.

    "Our task is to build that Britain and together we can."

    Jeremy Corbyn leaves the stage to a standing ovation by the conference crowd, and chants once more of "Oh, Jeremy Corbyn!"

  8. In quotes: Labour leader's call to PM over Brexit negotiations

    Labour leader's speech

    Quote Message: If you deliver a deal that includes a customs union and no hard border in Ireland, if you protect jobs, people’s rights at work and environmental and consumer standards - then we will support that sensible deal. A deal that would be backed by most of the business world and trade unions too. from Jeremy Corbyn

  9. Call to PM to deliver customs union and no hard border

    Labour leader's speech

    Directing his speech at Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn says if the prime minister can deliver a deal that includes a customs union and no hard border in Ireland, which protect jobs, people’s rights at work and environmental and consumer standards - then the Labour Party will support "that sensible deal".

    He warns Theresa May that if she can't negotiate a good deal, she should "make way for a party that can".

    "Where the Tories have divided and ruled, we will unite and govern."

  10. In quotes: Labour's Brexit stance

    What did the Labour leader say about Brexit?

    Quote Message: As it stands, Labour will vote against the Chequers plan or whatever is left of it and oppose leaving the EU with no deal. And it is inconceivable that we should crash out of Europe with no deal - that would be a national disaster. That is why if Parliament votes down a Tory deal or the government fails to reach any deal at all we would press for a General Election. Failing that, all options are on the table. from Jeremy Corbyn

  11. Jeremy Corbyn: 'May's 'my deal or no deal' threatens our economy"

    Labour leader's speech

    Speaking about Brexit, Jeremy Corbyn says there is an "air of uncertainty" around Britain.

    He says Labour respects the decision of the British people in the referendum "but no one can respect the conduct of the government since that vote took place".

    Jeremy Corybyn says instead of coming up with a progressive Brexit plan with the EU, "the main negotiations have taken place between different factions of the Tory party".

    He says "the only job this government is fighting for is the prime minister’s".

    Jeremy Corbyn warns that time is running out, and says the PM's "my deal or no deal" rhetoric "is a threat to our whole economy, especially our manufacturing industry and to tens of thousands of skilled jobs here in Britain".

    He says as it stands Labour will vote against the Chequers plan, and it is "inconceivable" that the UK should crash out of the EU with a no deal. He says this would be "a national disaster".

    "If Parliament votes down a Tory deal or the government fails to reach any deal at all, we would press for a general election. Failing that, all options are on the table."

  12. Jeremy Corbyn: 'Labour supports a secure Israel and Palestinian state'

    Labour leader's speech

    Jeremy Corbyn says Labour is united in condemning the shooting of hundreds of unarmed demonstrators in Gaza by Israeli forces and the passing of Israel’s Nation-State Law.

    "The continuing occupation, the expansion of illegal settlements and the imprisonment of Palestinian children are an outrage."

    He says the Labour party supports a two-state solution to the conflict with "a secure Israel and a viable and secure Palestinian state".

    "We will recognise a Palestinian state as soon as we take office."

    The Labour leader also pledges to make a "more determined effort" to bring the war in Syria to an end.

  13. Labour pledge to create 400,000 'green' jobs: what are the details?

    Labour leader's speech


    Jeremy Corbyn says he will "transform Britain" and "kickstart a green jobs revolution".

    This will include 400,000 skilled "green" jobs to insulate homes and build more wind farms.

    Labour says the policy of subsidising the insulation of homes will create 160,000 jobs alone.

    It includes a pledge that 60% of all the non-transport electricity and heat demand across the UK will be supplied by means that are either renewable or low-carbon by 2030.

    By 2050, Jeremy Corbyn says the UK's net carbon emissions will be reduced to zero.

    Labour's plans to overhaul the economy into a 'green economy' include:

    • Reducing heat demand from buildings by almost a quarter
    • Ensuring 44% of the heating demand is fulfilled by renewable sources
    • Ensuring 85% of electricity comes from renewable and low carbon sources

    There will also be subsidies for offshore and onshore wind and solar energy through changes to planning guidance, with landlords being made to invest in retrofitting older properties.

    The plans also say that by 2030 there will be 6,000 onshore wind turbines, 7,500 offshore wind turbines, and 2.5 million homes will be powered by solar power.

  14. 'Labour will speak for democratic values and human rights'

    Labour leader's speech

    Jeremy Corbyn says that President Trump is "turning his back on international cooperation and even international law" when he takes the United States out of the Paris accords, tries to scrap the Iran nuclear deal, moves the US embassy to Jerusalem and pursues aggressive nationalism and trade wars.

    He says a British government that can "not only keep the country safe, but can also speak out for democratic values and human rights" is needed.

    "Labour’s foreign policy will be driven by progressive values and international solidarity."

    Referencing Iraq and Libya, Jeremy Corbyn promises "no more reckless wars of intervention".
