Tom Watson: We need to rebuild trust in the Labour party

The Labour party needs to "rebuild trust" after a "very bruising summer", Tom Watson has said.

The Deputy Labour leader told ITV News the country is "looking at an early general election" and taking on Theresa May's Conservative government must be the party's "sole priority", after members re-elected Jeremy Corbyn as leader following a challenge from Owen Smith.

"We have got to rebuild trust in the party, that's going to take patience, patience is the most effective warrior in this," he said.

"We've got to build confidence back between the MPs in parliament, but I think we can do that with a little bit of time and patience. And if we can do that we can focus on our general election priorities and for those millions of people that need a Labour government."
