Jeremy Corbyn was cheered as he rose to make his first statement at Prime Minister's Questions, before proceeding to ask questions sent in by members of the public.

The new Labour leader said he had received 40,000 questions after putting the call out, and suggested the question-and-answer session should be done differently in future.
