The deposed leader of the local Labour group on Leicestershire council, Robert Sharp, who represented Loughborough, took aim at the party leader.
Sharp told the Leicester Mercury: “I am personally disappointed but we saw it coming. I have said before that it has been tough on the doorstep. We have struggled to get local issues noticed.
“All we have had back at us is Brexit and ‘bloody Corbyn’. I don’t want to sound like a bitter candidate who has just lost his seat and is trying to blame someone else, but Jeremy Corbyn has had a negative impact on this campaign.”
