Corbyn feted at miners' rally

As expeced Jeremy Corbyn drew a record crowd to the Durham miners' gala yesterday.

The Labour leader called on Theresa May to call a snap general election.

"Jeremy Corbyn urged Theresa May to end the Conservative “nightmare” and call a snap general election as he addressed record crowds at a Durham Miners’ Gala hailed as a “celebration of Corbynism”.
"To the now-familiar chants of “Oh Jer-emy Cor-byn”, the Labour leader demanded an end to the public sector pay cap and a public inquiry into the “national catastrophe” of the Grenfell fire.
"His speech to the 133rd Durham Miners’ gala was interrupted when a woman invaded the stage and briefly refused to leave, having fought her way through the crowds.
"At one point she held on to the Labour leader as trade unionists nearby scrambled to his aide. 
"After the stage invasion, Corbyn told the crowd: “Someone wants to have a chat with me about a couple of things. I’m very happy to do that. I do talk to everybody.”
