Keir Starmer issues defiant message of support to Angela Rayner over tax affairs

Sir Keir Starmer issued a defiant statement to deputy Labour leader Angela Rayner as police continue to investigate her living arrangements and tax affairs.

Sir Keir insisted he doesn't need to read Ms Rayner's two homes scandal legal advice because he believes she's done nothing wrong.

During an interview with Good Morning Britain on Tuesday (30 April), Sir Keir said: “Do you believe Angela Rayner about where she says she was living? The answer to that question for me, is yes.”
