Protesters stormed the stage during Jeremy Corbyn's speech on human rights

Jeremy Corbyn’s speech on human rights on Saturday was interrupted by a group of protesters holding signs that read “Sanction Russia for war crimes.”

The demonstrators were led by British human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell, who criticised the Labour leader for not demanding action on Syria. 

Sky News tweeted a clip of protesters storming the stage mid-speech:
