Jeremy Corbyn announced he would not lead Labour in any future general election campaign after a “very disappointing” night.
But he suggested he would not be departing as Labour leader immediately.
will discuss with our party to ensure there is a process now of reflection on this result and on the policies that the party will take going forward,” Mr Corbyn added.
