Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been visiting Harlow to launch the party's local election campaign.

It marks the start of a big month of campaigning for him which also means a visit to Norwich.

May's council elections will be his first major test of public opinion since becoming leader last September. Labour controls only seven of the 60 councils in the Anglia region including those in Harlow and Norwich.

The party lost 15% of its councillors across the Anglia region at the last local council elections in 2015 and has only four MPs in the region.
