Jeremy Corbyn arrives in Wales ahead of election

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has joined Carwyn Jones on the final day of the campaign trail before the polls open ahead of the Assembly elections tomorrow.

Earlier today the leader faced criticism from the Prime Minister over his handling of anti-Semitism within his party.

Ahead of his visit, Corbyn urged 'progressive people' to back the party.

What I would say to those people in Wales is that there’s a big choice, and a lot at stake in this election. The Tories are making no secret of their plan to do a deal with UKIP to try and form a Welsh Government. If that happens, all that progress on issues that matter to you goes under a bus. The NHS, the environment, decent pay, support for young people – a basic commitment to fairness – these are all things that Welsh Labour fight for, day in, day out.

"So, I say to all progressive people in Wales – especially those living in those seats that are a straight fight between Labour and the Tories - now is the time to stand with us and give Welsh Labour your support."

– Jeremy Corbyn MP, Labour Leader
