Watson: Corbyn needs more time in charge

Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson has said Jeremy Corbyn "needs more time" to "set out his stall" as party leader.

It comes after an election night which saw the party lose a number of seats across the UK - though they have performed better than expected in England so far.

Mr Watson said Labour suffered a devastating loss in last year's general election, meaning this year the party was "coming from low base".

"We've got some way to go," he added.

He also paid tribute to the members who lost in the Scottish Parliament elections, with the Tories making unexpected gains to become the second biggest party in Scotland.
