Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour MP who accused Israel of “war crimes” against Palestinians, has held his seat in Islington North.

Mr Corbyn enjoyed a 3.3 per swing from the Liberal Democrats to the Labour Party, in his North London constituency.

The backbencher, who recently chaired a talk at the Houses of Parliament which compared Israel’s action in Gaza to the Jews' suffering in the Holocaust, now enjoys one of the biggest majorities in London, of 12,401.
