LABOUR Party leader Jeremy Corbyn took a step off the campaign trail on Saturday while visiting parts of the North of England.

Mr Corbyn was speaking in Mytholmroyd, near Hebden Bridge, on Saturday afternoon, after having stepped back from campaigning following the incident in the capital on Friday.

He called the London Bridge attack “a complete disaster”, and said there are urgent questions to be answered about the role of the Parole Board and probation services.

Mr Corbyn said there needs to be a full investigation into the way all aspects of the Criminal Justice System operates.

He said: “Clearly there has been a complete disaster in that lives have been lost because of his (the terrorist’s) behaviour.

The Party leader also attended an event in Leeds on Saturday night.
