London SE1 website team

Labour leadership candidates Jeremy Corbyn and Owen Smith came to Waterloo on Tuesday night for hustings organised by faith groups.

The debate at the Oasis Centre in Waterloo was organised by the Good Faith Partnership and Christians on the Left (formerly the Christian Socialist Movement) with Sikhs for Labour.

The event was introduced by Oasis founder Steve Chalke who talked about the many projects the charity runs in Waterloo, and spoke for the first time about the controversial decision to host Waterloo Library when its original premises faced closure by Lambeth Council.
