Michael Foot’s visit to Norwich in 1983 was the last time a politician drew the crowds of Corbyn

Left-wing Labour leadership contender Jeremy Corbyn packed out a city venue on Thursday night.
We think the last time a politician drew such a crowd in Norwich was when Michael Foot came to St Andrews Hall in 1983.
Corbyn's speech at the Open on Bank Plain attracted around 1,000 people, making it the largest political rally in Norwich for years.
We challenged our readers on Twitter to remember a more packed venue for a politician in Norwich and one suggested Mr Foot's rally.
Mr Foot lost the 1983 election to Conservative Margaret Thatcher. His left-wing Labour manifesto was dubbed the 'longest suicide note in history'...
