Labour’s deputy leader Angela Rayner has “unreservedly” apologised for comments made at her party’s conference where she called Conservatives “scum”.

The MP initially stood by her remarks saying she would say sorry when the PM apologised for his own past comments.

However, in a Facebook post, Ms Rayner said she had since reflected on “our political debate” and the “abuse that now seems to feature all too often”.

She added that in the future she would be “more careful” about her language.
