More than 1,500 people have signed up to see the left-wing Labour leadership frontrunner in Norwich this evening.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Norwich rally has attracted more RSVPs than similar rallies in Leeds and Bradford this week.

It is set to reach twice the capacity of the Open venue, on Bank Plain.

With standing room only, the hall can hold 1,200 people, but if some seats are to be provided, it would only be able to accommodate about 800.

Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign team said people would be admitted on a first come, first served basis.

The rally begins at 7pm.
