Khan and Corbyn meet after London Mayoral success

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has met with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in public for the first time after a weekend of contrasting election fortunes.

While Mr Khan enjoyed electoral success in the capital, Mr Corbyn oversaw less encouraging results for his party in the UK's "Super Thursday" elections.

Sadiq Khan appeared in front of the cameras alongside his party leader following his election victory over Tory rival Zac Goldsmith at the weekend.
The pair chatted about football in the relaxed public appearance.
Mr Khan has urged Jeremy Corbyn and his party to learn lessons from his election victory in the capital by listening to voters.

Corbyn dismisses criticism from David Miliband

Jeremy Corbyn dismissed suggestions that he should withdraw from the leadership race for the good of the party.

Responding to earlier criticism from David Miliband, he told ITV News' Political Correspondent Lewis Vaughan Jones:

"Miliband lives in New York and may be unaware of the excitement that the leadership contest has aroused in Britain."

He also reacted angrily to suggestions that the 600,000 registered voters were unrepresentative of the country as a whole.
