This comes amid several recent revelations involving party members, including Corbyn's own apparent support of a mural with anti-Semitic undertones, have led to protests against his leadership from sections of the Jewish community.

He added: "The UK government must support the UN Secretary-General's call for an independent worldwide inquiry into the killing of protesters in Gaza and review the sale of arms that could be used in violation of global law".
