Watch today's political round-up below:

Jeremy Corbyn has responded to racism claims made by the Chief Rabbi of Britain.

Mr Corbyn has said anti-Semitism is "vile and wrong" and has "no place whatsoever" in the Labour Party, after Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis criticised the party's handling of the issue.

Meanwhile, the Tories are launching an independent inquiry to look at claims of Islamophobia in the Conservative party.

Meanwhile the Green Party co-leader Jonathan Bartley has joined a demonstration outside the Department of Transport against HS2.

They say the project will destroy ancient woodlands and threaten habitats.

HS2 Limited say the high-speed railway will support a transition to a net-zero carbon UK economy, and will help reduce road traffic by freeing up rail capacity for freight.

With only a few hours left to register to vote in the 2019 General Election, people have come up with a crafty way to remind others to sign up.
