Jeremy Corbyn has been heckled on the campaign trail in Glasgow by a passer by who accused the Labour leader of 'running away'. Corbyn was giving an interview when he was asked:

'Do you think the man that's going to be the prime minister of this country should be a terrorist sympathiser, Mr Corbyn?'

The man, who also made a reference to an 'Islamic jihad scarf', then followed up the question by asking Corbyn:

'Who is going to be the first terrorist invited to the House of Commons when you're prime minister?'

'When Labour wins, Scotland wins,' Corbyn tweeted this morning. It sounds like one Glaswegian isn't so sure...
