Corbyn announces departure but not just yet

03:48

Jeremy Corbyn has held his constituency, Islington North, and his party has gained the majority in Wales but is seeing losses in many parts of the UK.

Corbyn said: “Today has been a disappointing day for the party. We put forward a manifesto of hope and unity that would help to right the wrongs and the injustices of this country.” He recognised that Brexit had “polarised the country”, and said he will not lead Labour into the next election after his defeat.
