Details of Labour's supposed manifesto were 'leaked' late on Wednesday night, revealing major nationalisation pledges and plans for radical reforms to the NHS, education sector and housing policies.

The apparent draft manifesto initially published by the Mirror and Telegraph - and seen by ITV News' Political Editor Robert Peston - has been dismissed by a Labour spokesman as just "a draft of policy ideas".

Denying it was the party's official manifesto Andrew Gwynne, Labour's national campaigns co-ordinator, told Good Morning Britain: "This document that has appeared in the newspapers today isn't a manifesto. It's a draft of policy ideas that have been collated from various members of the shadow cabinet, their teams and other stakeholders."

Here we take a look at the key points from the 'leaked' documents broken down into affected sectors.
