Momentum, a group set up to support of the new Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, is to be investigated by the Information Commissioner following complaints.

Momentum describes itself on its web-site as “Jeremy Corbyn for Labour Leader has transformed into Momentum – a network of people and organisations that will continue the energy and enthusiasm of Jeremy’s campaign”.

The allegations are thought to revolve around the use of data which was collected in the 2015 Labour leadership campaign which has now been kept. Momentum have denied the allegations and have said that they will assist with any investigation.
