Former shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper has said that suspensions are not enough and the Labour party needs an "action plan" to tackle alleged anti-Semitism within its ranks.

Speaking to Channel 4 news she said: "The Labour Party needs to do more than simply to have suspensions of people who have been saying anti-Semitic things.

"We've actually got to have an action plan to deal with this in order to have strong processes so that there is swift action because you can never tolerate that kind of discrimination in the party."
