Chuka Umunna has hit out at the Labour trolls who targeted Clive Lewis following his speech at the Party Conference.

The Shadow Defence Secretary is believed to have punched a wall after being told to remove a line pledging support for Trident immediately before he went on stage in Liverpool.

That led to Mr Lewis getting abuse on social media. But Mr Umunna stuck up for his colleague, saying it was "frankly a disgrace."

He said: "The abuse that the Shadow Defence Secretary Clive Lewis has now had on social media... all these stupid labels. Blairite. The people who are so anti-Blair are the ones who bang on about him more than anyone else. Tony Blair stopped being the leader of the Labour party almost 10 years ago.

"To call Clive Lewis a Blairite and start abusing him because he dares to assert the policy of the party is frankly a disgrace."

Chuka then let out a very hearty laugh when Nick asked him: "Who's got the shorter temper, Clive Lewis or Gordon Brown?"
