Former Czech agent claims Corbyn 'good source'

Labour has denied allegations Jeremy Corbyn had been either a collaborator or agent of the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia in the 1980s.

The Labour leader's spokesman said the claims had come from a single source and were "absurd and hallucinogenic".

It comes as the German authorities said it had found no records of a Stasi file on Mr Corbyn in "recent searches," following press speculation.

A former Czech agent, Jan Sarkocy, claims to have met Mr Corbyn several times in London.

Interviewed by the BBC in Bratislava, Slovakia, he described Mr Corbyn as a "very, very good source".
