Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn met with members in Musselburgh today to hear their views on the party's way forward.

Mr Corbyn was joined by Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale and East Lothian's MP Martin Whitfield and MSP Iain Gray at the meeting in Fisherrow Centre.

Dozens of local members were invited to take part in the meeting which saw Mr Corbyn sit down at tables with groups of them to hear their views and answer question.

Mr Corbyn revealed he had visited 40 constituencies over the summer to hear the views of members.

He said: "I am delighted to be here and see so many people."

Organisers said they could have filled the hall three times over with the number of people who wanted to attend the meeting, which was kept low profile.

Iain Gray said Mr Corbyn's visit sent a powerful message to Labour party members.

He said: "This visit is a powerful message. We have seen a surge in new members recently in Musselburgh and across East Lothian.

"This shows that the Labour party is talking to its members and listening to what they have to say."

Local party member Ferhan Ashiq said he was delighted by the chance to sit down with Mr Corbyn.

He said: "How often do you get the chance to sit down with a party leader? This is very important and sends an important message."
