midnight news leads with …

“A leaked recording of Jeremy Corbyn suggests he believes Labour officials have either lost mislaid or ignored evidence of anti-semitism in the party. His words were secretly taped in February, as Labour struggled to cope with the number of anti-semitism complaints made against its members.

Lord Falconer told me their investigation should take precedence, and not operate in parallel to his, he could then take up a longer-term role after they finish.”
