Jeremy Corbyn's first visit to the North East as Labour leader will bring him to Sunderland next week.

The new man at the helm will speak at a meeting in the city centre on Thursday, November 26.

Doors will open at 6.30pm, with the 'informal' event starting at 7pm.

The meeting is open to Labour Party members only at present. The venue is not being disclosed, with party members informed only once they have registered by e-mail.

“One the best things about the Leadership election campaign this summer was getting out of Westminster and travelling across the UK to talk to members about the political challenges we face," said Mr Corbyn.

"Since becoming Leader of the Party, I've been determined to carry on visiting all parts of the country to listen to members’ views.

"I'm delighted I'm making my first visit to the North East as Leader next week.

"I’ll be in central Sunderland on Thursday 26th November at 7pm and I’m looking forward to meeting more members from local parties. “
