Mr Corbyn visited Sale earlier following Labour's significant victory.

He continued:: "We'll fight back and we'll win them back".

We are going to campaign and continue to campaign to try and keep and bring people together in negotations over Brexit, but also to oppose austerity and put forward an agenda which deals with the injustices that exist in this country.

He acknowledged the party want to do better, and blamed the results on "local factors" as well as "people probably disagreeing with both parties on attitudes to the European Union".

He said:

Our policy is that we’re the only party that seeks to appeal to people however they voted in 2016 and to seek to defend jobs and working conditions in this country.
