The leader of the Unite union has hit out at Labour grandees being "dragged out" to be part of the "unedifying" coup against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn which he said was "outrageous".
In an interview on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Len McCluskey said: "This has been a political lynching of a decent man undermined, humiliated and attacked in order to push him out."
He added: "And here's the truth, it's failed. Jeremy Corbyn is made of stronger stuff. He is a man of steel."
The leader of the UK's biggest trade union has said the country is 'riven' as a result of the EU referendum.
Len McCluskey told ITV News that the trade unions can help broker a peace deal and reunite the party now the "coup has failed".
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would 'reach out' to MPs that oppose his leadership but said they should 'respect democracy'.
