Nick Ferrari was left baffled as a Jeremy Corbyn fan continued to deny that the Labour leader lied over laying a wreath in Tunisia.

Controversy has dogged Mr Corbyn over claims he commemorated the people behind the 1972 Munich terror attack.

Mr Corbyn originally said he was at the event, but was not involved in laying a wreath. But once a photo of him holding a wreath emerged, he admitted he had indeed laid one.

He stated he had attended to take part in a ceremony honouring innocent victims of a 1985 Israeli air strike.

Despite this, Michael Walker, the Editor of Novara Media, told Nick he didn't think Mr Corbyn had lied about it.

Nick responded: "Firstly, he said he didn't lay the wreath. Now he says he did lay the wreath.

"It started off 'I was just present' and he's finally had to say because there are pictures of it, that he's laid the wreath."

When Michael said it was unclear whether he was laying the wreath or not, Nick told him: "That's ludicrous. Have you see the pictures? His hands are on the wreath. He's even admitted it himself.

"What I find intriguing is that when confronted with the truth, you just plain deny it or shout 'fake news'. Even the man himself admits it."

An extremely heated discussion followed, which ended when Mr Walker said: "We need to look at why this person was at this memorial."

But Nick told him: "No, we need to ask why he can't tell the truth."
