Jeremy Corbyn has been heckled by an angry voter who branded the Labour leader a “terrorist sympathiser” while on the general election campaign trail.

As Mr Corbyn was entering the Heart of Scotstoun community centre in Glasgow this morning, Mr Corbyn was soon interrupted by Richard Cameron, the minister at Scotstoun Parish Church, who shouted: "I thought you'd be wearing your Islamic jihad scarf.”

It comes on the same day as Boris Johnson was heckled by flood victims during a visit to Yorkshire.

Mr Cameron said: "Do you think that the man who is going to be prime minister of this country should be a terrorist sympathiser, Mr Corbyn?

"Who's going to be the first terrorist invited to the House of Commons when you're prime minister?”

Mr Corbyn did not react to Mr Cameron, remaining quiet before he was ushered into the community centre by Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard.

Mr Cameron then accused Mr Corbyn of "running away”.

A spokeswoman for the Church of Scotland later rebuked Mr Cameron.

She said: "The Church of Scotland as an organisation has a long history of engaging with politicians through a number of different channels.

"Whilst we may occasionally robustly challenge policy issues with which we disagree, we always intend to do that in a way that is polite and measured and allows for reasoned debate."
