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.
