Yvette Cooper critical of Labour's election performance

Labour MP Yvette Cooper has said Labour are "hanging on" in some parts of the UK following last Thursday's election, and it's "not enough".

Despite Sadiq Khan winning the London Mayoral election, Labour lost 18 councils in England, 13 in Scotland and one in Wales - a result that has led to criticism of Jeremy Corbyn's leadership.

Reacting to shadow chancellor John McDonnell's comments that Jeremy Corbyn's critics should "get behind us and stop carping", Cooper said the party should be "honest" about Labour's position, and "how far" they have to go.
