The new Labour leader said he would do his best to persuade his party that the £100 billion-weapons system should be scrapped.

ITV News Political Editor Tom Bradby questioned whether Mr Corbyn "would be seen as willing to sell out his principles for power, like so many others".

David Cameron has said Labour cannot be trusted with Britain's national security in response to Jeremy Corbyn's answer on Trident.

When Mr Corbyn was asked if he would ever press the nuclear button if he was Prime Minister, he said: "No."

Well look, the independent nuclear deterrent that we have in Britain is a vital insurance policy for our nation in what is a very dangerous world.

And frankly, the way the Labour Leader has answered that question undermines our deterrent and demonstrates that Labour can't be trusted with our national security which after all is the most important duty of government.

– David Cameron
