Jeremy Corbyn accuses Theresa May of ignoring terror warnings when she cut 20,000 police officers and claims she is suppressing a report about Saudi funding of extremists...

Jeremy Corbyn tonight accused Theresa May of ignoring warnings about the terror risks of cutting police officers.

Labour's leader said Mrs May accused the Police Federation of 'crying wolf' about the cuts as he responded to the third terror attack in three months to hit Britain.

He said the Government could not protect the public 'on the cheap' in a hard-hitting address.

Mr Corbyn also accused her of suppressing a report believed to make embarrassing allegations about major British arms customer Saudi Arabia funding extremists.

And he sought to end the earlier controversy over his support for police use of 'shoot-to-kill' tactics against armed attackers, by stating that he backed the 'full authority for the police to use whatever force is necessary to protect and save life as they did last night, as they did in Westminster in March'.  Full story...
