A Tory MP has been forced to delete a ‘libelous tweet’ that accused Jeremy Corbyn of selling ‘British secrets to Communist spies’ after the Labour leader had ‘instructed solicitors’ to act.

The potential legal action referred to a tweet sent out by the Tory MP for Mansfield that wrongly accused Corbyn of selling ‘British secrets to Communist spies’:

Ben Bradley Corbyn Secrets to Communist Spies

Mr Corbyn had been urged to take legal action against the Tory MP by numerous high profile journalists including Owen Jones and Abi Wilkinson.

Whilst the Conservative MP has now deleted the tweet, he has so far yet to issue either an apology or a retraction for the false allegations.
