As a carer, I’m right with Mr Corbyn on this one.

Jeremy Corbyn has said care workers are “grossly underpaid” and pledged £8 billion of extra funding for social care if elected.

The Labour leader made the comments during a visit to Milton Keynes University Hospital on Thursday morning, where he toured the A&E and cancer wards and spoke to patients.

He called the present social care budget “insufficient” and promised to increase funding by £8 billion over the course of a Parliament if elected.

Mr Corbyn also spoke about the pressures faced by A&E staff.

He said hospital workers he talked to in Lincoln last week had told of treating patients in ambulances in hospital car parks when all bays in A&E were full.
