Jeremy Corbyn visited Purbeck to attend the private funeral of comedian Jeremy Hardy on Monday.

The Labour leader was seen on the Sandbanks Ferry yesterday morning.

Posting on Twitter earlier today, actress Juliet Stevenson said: "We buried Jeremy Hardy yesterday. By the sea in Dorset. No words for how missed he is, will always be."

Hardy, who appeared in BBC Radio 4 panel shows such as The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, passed away on February 1 at the age of 57.
