A man has been charged with assault after Jeremy Corbyn was egged at a north London mosque.
John Murphy, 31, is alleged to have screamed “When you vote you get what you vote for” before smacking Mr Corbyn with an egg.
The incident occurred at Finsbury Park Mosque, which the Labour leader was attending as part of a national Visit My Mosque Day event with shadow home secretary Diane Abbott.

Police say Murphy was not a regular guest and had been waiting inside the building for Mr Corbyn.
Murphy will appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on Tuesday March 19.
