Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn faced controversy at the launch of his party’s race and faith manifesto in north London, after the Chief Rabbi warned his failure to tackle the issue made him unfit to be prime minister.

Meanwhile, Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson visited the South West, and Boris Johnson headed north to unveil the Tories’ Scottish election manifesto.
