Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott has reported a tweet directed towards Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May, suggesting she should be beheaded with a light sabre 'or whatever you can put your hands on'. 

The MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington reported the tweet to Twitter and the Metropolitan Police. 

Abbott's tweet ran: "Dear and I would like to report this tweet that went up this evening. It has since been deleted but not before it was screenshot by my staff. No doubt thought it amusing to call for my beheading on this thread. I do not."

Parliamentary Police have been informed of the matter.
