Two hours until the noon deadline for Labour leadership nominations, and Jeremy Corbyn is edging closer to the 35 votes he needs to get on the ballot:

Sadiq Khan is also nominating someone he doesn’t think could win Labour an election:

That’s why I will be nominating Jeremy, in the hope he makes it onto the ballot.”

Corbyn backers say expect a flurry of late nominations…
