Mole leaking Jeremy Corbyn plans to the Tories, claims aide

By Jack Hardy

A Mole at the heart of Jeremy Corbyn's team is regularly leaking information to the Conservatives, the Labour leader's closest adviser has claimed.

In a fly-on-the-wall documentary, another aide suggests the "best" way to get rid of Mr Corbyn would be to "let Jeremy fail on his own".

The Opposition leader is shown accusing the BBC of being "obsessed with trying to damage" his leadership and furiously attacking Britain's "facile" media in the film.

Vice News captured Mr Corbyn and his team over a number of weeks as he attempted to steer the party through an anti-Semitism crisis and local elections night.

Seumas Milne, head of communications and strategy, said information was being leaked to the Tories following weekly preparatory meetings for Prime Minister's Questions.
