UK Labour leader calls for calm after challenger's office vandalised
"It is extremely concerning that Angela Eagle has been the victim of a threatening act and that other MPs (lawmakers) are receiving abuse and threats," Corbyn said in an emailed statement.
Police said they were investigating after a window was damaged in Liverpool, where lawmaker Angela Eagle is based. Eagle launched a bid to oust Corbyn on Monday.
"As someone who has also received death threats this week and previously, I am calling on all Labour Party members and supporters to act with calm and treat each other with respect and dignity, even where there is disagreement."
