Jeremy Corbyn hopes to get his election campaign back on track on Wednesday and move on from allegations that he has failed to tackle anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

Mr Corbyn refused to apologise to the Jewish community during a BBC interview with veteran journalist Andrew Neil, after the Chief Rabbi warned that his failure to tackle the issue made him unfit to be prime minister.


Mr Corbyn will make a statement on the NHS during a speech in London.
