Jeremy Corbyn's youngest son says he was headbutted as he left a nightclub.

Engineering student Thomas, better known as 'Tommy', suffered a cut to his eye after being assaulted outside the dance venue in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The 22-year-old, who was out with friends, had been helping put on a 'Party for Palestine' hip-hop event on Friday night before heading to York's Mansion club, where the man says he was assaulted.

He has since lodged a formal complaint to police, who are now investigating.
