McDonnell calls on Lord Sugar to 'disown' tweet depicting Corbyn and Hitler

Meanwhile, The Sunday Times reports 12 senior members of staff working for Mr Corbyn and shadow chancellor John McDonnell were in social media groups that contained anti-Semitic and violent comments.

The revelations follow a tumultuous week for Labour which has seen fresh recriminations within the party, as well as a protest outside Parliament led by Jewish leaders who accused Mr Corbyn of repeatedly siding with anti-Semites.

May's message comes at the end of a week in which outrage among the Jewish community and its supporters over antisemitic incidents in and surrounding the Labour Party bubbled to the surface, with over 2,000 people gathering outside the United Kingdom parliament to challenge Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's perceived failure to tackle the issue.

Ms Shawcroft had already quit as chairwoman of the party's disputes panel after it emerged she had opposed the suspension of a council candidate accused of Holocaust denial.

Sir David Garrard, who is considered one of the largest donors to the Labor party, has announced he will leave its ranks due to the rampant anti-Semitism that allegedly plagues the party.

Lord Winston said hostility to Jews has "infected the Labour Party so it's become endemic".

"It has no place in our party", Mr Izzard said.

As the runner-up when she was elected previous year, Mr Izzard now automatically takes her place.

Lord Alan Sugar removed a controversial tweet depicting Jeremy Corbyn sat in a auto alongside Adolf Hitler, following criticism Labour MPs. Allegations of Labour anti-Semitism have grown since Corbyn, a longtime critic of Israeli actions against the Palestinians, was elected leader of Britain's main opposition party in 2015.

He added: 'I consider that it has supported and endorsed the most blatant acts of antisemitism'.

Mr Corbyn belonged to a group containing posts about the Rothschilds, a Jewish family often criticised in anti-Semitic conspiracy claiming that Jews control world finance.

He said the party, which he has donated £1.5m to since 2003, "no longer exists" as he watched the current handling of the anti-Semitism crisis with "growing dismay and foreboding".

He said the issue had to be dealt with "for the good of the people Labour seeks to represent".

He echoed deputy leader Tom Watson in highlighting the case of former London mayor Ken Livingstone - a long-time ally of the Labour leader who remains suspended over comments suggesting Hitler supported Zionism in the 1930s. He closed his response by saying Corbyn needed to make a "firm statement" about antisemitism.

"We must make amends and fix the damage with the Jewish community as Jeremy Corbyn has promised to do", Izzard said.
