Jeremy Corbyn has finalised his frontbench line-up

Jeremy Corbyn has finalised his frontbench line-up, appointing a peer jailed for arson to his education team.
Lord Watson - a former MP and MSP - was given a 16-month jail sentence in 2005 for starting a fire at an Edinburgh hotel. He was suspended from the party, but regained the whip in 2012.
The Scottish National Party (SNP) said his appointment as an education spokesman was "bizarre".
