Jeremy Corbyn is a keen writer of poetry and abstract painter, the Labour leadership frontrunner has revealed.

Speaking at the launch event for his arts policy in Dalston, north east London, he spoke of his enjoyment of creative activities.

“I do write quite a bit of poetry myself,” he said, adding that he had found time to write some verse whilst travelling on the train during the leadership campaign.

Mr Corbyn also revealed that he was fond of creating “totally random paintings that are abstract beyond belief”, adding that he believed there was a creative painter or writer inside everyone.
