Jeremy Corbyn has revealed that he suffered a split lip and black eye by tripping over a tree root while out jogging yesterday.

Spotted with the injuries at a picket line outside Euston Station, the former Labour leader said: ‘I was out running in Finsbury Park and unfortunately a tree root had protruded over the path.

‘Me and the tree root collided and I collided with the ground afterwards. There was nobody else involved – totally me on my own – but I love running anyway.’

Asked if he would keep up with his running, he answered: ‘Of course.’

The left-winger was spotted on the picket line along with fellow Labour MP Rebecca Long-Bailey, who said she is ‘proud’ to support striking workers.

As backbenchers they have more freedom to do so, but Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has been struggling to stop his frontbenchers from getting involved.

Mr Corbyn criticised his successor for sacking of a shadow transport minister for giving interviews from a picket line last month.

‘Sam is a trade union person like me, he used to work for the TSSA, he went on a picket line to support his union and his members,’ he said.

‘I think to dismiss him from his shadow position was very unfair.’

Workers have been in a dispute with rail companies all summer over job security, working conditions and pay offers.

They say whatever they have been offered so far hasn’t been nearly enough to copy with spiralling inflation, with prices surging at their fastest rate in 40 years.

The Salford MP added: ‘They deserve a real cost of living pay rise, they deserve protection of terms and conditions & they & passengers deserve safe, secure railways.’

Also at the Euston picket line was general secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT), warned the rail dispute could be prolonged ‘indefinitely’.

Right now around one in five trains are running across the network due to walkouts from the RMT and TSSA unions.
