Jeremy Corbyn has been heckled by a Church of Scotland minister describing him as a “terrorist sympathiser” outside a campaign rally in Glasgow.

Footage posted on social media shows the Labour leader speaking to press alongside Scottish Labour equivalent Richard Leonard before Reverend Richard Cameron began shouting accusations regarding Mr Corbyn’s ‘sympathies’.

Heckling Mr Corbyn outside a community centre in the Scotstoun area of the city, Rev Cameron referenced a tartan scarf worn by the Labour leader, shouting: “I thought you would be wearing your Islamic Jihad scarf.”

Mr Corbyn did not respond to the comment, but as he turned to walk away, the heckler continued: “Do you think the man that is going to be prime minister of this country should be a terrorist sympathiser?”

Sky News reporter Tom Rayner posted the video on Twitter.

He went on: “Who is going to be the first terrorist invited to the House of Commons when you are prime minister?”

Mr Corbyn was then ushered inside the venue, to which Rev Cameron shouted: “Aye, he’s running away”.

The Labour leader attended the event as part of a two-day visit to key seats in Scotland ahead of December's general election.

The heckle came just hours after Tom Harris, a former Labour MP for Glasgow South, branded corbyn "an extremist," adding the idea of him as prime minister "chills me to the bone".
