Corbynmania, the phenomenon that's sweeping the nation. It seems like everywhere you look, there's Jeremy Corbyn.

Now, in scenes more reminiscent of a rock concert, (albeit one attended by middle-aged people in beige jackets) huge crowds are queuing to hear the Labour leadership hopeful speak, and have been filmed waiting patiently in a line outside Nottingham's Albert Hall ahead of his event.

The Islington North MP's popularity is evident and he is now an odds-on chance at 8/11 with William Hill to win the contest by receiving enough first preference votes in the first round.

Corbyn-mania has been caught on camera (file photo)

Corbyn has been on course to win the leadership election since July, when a YouGov poll for the Times put him at 53% of the vote.

More than 600,000 people applied to vote, apparently fuelled by the popularity of Corbyn, with thousands attracted by having to pay just £3 to become "registered supporters".
