Jeremy Corbyn has apologised to Labour supporters over his party's heavy defeat in the general election.

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

Writing in the Sunday Mirror and the Observer, he acknowledged the party's failings in the poll and said he accepted his responsibility for it.

It comes as two likely leadership candidates - Lisa Nandy and Jess Phillips - have set out their stalls ahead of the race to succeed Mr Corbyn.

Boris Johnson will unveil his Queen's Speech on Thursday.

It will include a commitment to enshrine increases in spending on the NHS in England in legislation.

Mr Johnson won a Commons majority of 80 in Thursday's general election, his party's biggest election win for 30 years, sweeping aside Labour in its traditional heartlands.

In contrast, Labour suffered its worst election result since 1935 and saw its vote share fall by 8 points.
