Labour mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan today said he wears a "badge of shame" because of anti-Semitism in his party.

He attacked Labour's leadership for not taking a "tougher stance" and said he knew what it was to "suffer hate crime", before adding: "I also know it's unacceptable in 2016 that there is anti-Semitism in the Labour party.
