Jeremy Corbyn held an umbrella over a Labour MP making a speech in the rain after she joked about why only he had one.

Laura Pidcock, the MP for North West Durham, was speaking to a crowd in Carlisle with the Labour leader when it started to rain.

A Corbyn aide brought him an umbrella and leader of the council Colin Glover held it over him, leaving Ms Pidcock in the rain.

She then joked: "He gets a brolly, how come I don't?

"He wants a fairer system, he says."

Mr Corbyn then got huge cheers from the crowd as he stepped forward and held the umbrella over her while she finished her speech.
