One of Jeremy Corbyn’s most senior allies is facing calls to resign after suggesting that it would be “wonderful” if Holocaust Memorial Day was not just about the genocide of Jews.

Jackie Walker,

vice-chair of Momentum, who has previously been suspended over alleged anti-Semitic remarks, also questioned the party’s definition of anti-Semitism during the training session, prompting party members to shout and heckle in disbelief.

The chair of Jewish Labour has demanded Ms Walker resign over the “provocative and insensitive” remarks, the second time this week that members have called for her to be suspended from the party.

In a secret recording obtained by The Telegraph, she can be heard arguing that Holocaust Memorial Day, one of the most significant dates of remembrance of the persecution of the Jews, is not inclusive enough.

A Jackson resident is facing bias intimidation charges after he went on a profanity-laced, anti-Semitic tirade following a three-vehicle crash, police said.

The aftermath of the collision, which occurred on Thursday near the intersection of East Kennedy Boulevard and Clifton Avenue, was caught on video and widely spread on social media websites.

The video shows a man, who police identified as Elijah Chandler, 34, of Jackson, lashing out at several bystanders who appear to be Orthodox Jews. On the video, he used anti-Semitic epithets while shouting at the men.

Police closed the southbound carriage at Junction 2 as well as one lane of the northbound carriageway. There were no reports of injuries.

About 35 firefighters and officers tackled the blaze near Gerrards Cross as witnesses reported hearing about four or five blasts.

“Witnessed terrible explosions on the M40,” TV presenter Gethin Jones tweeted. “Stuck in the tailback for an hour and not gonna be moving soon.”

Hannah Bishop, who lives nearby, tweeted: “Five massive explosions fire and black smoke very nearby. Shook house. Definitely not good whatever it is.”

She later added: “Local word is it’s a huge crane on hard shoulder. Explosions were tyres and fuel tank going up in flames. Terrifying end to today.”

Six fire engines as well as a water tanker and command unit were deployed to tackle the fire. Pictures posted from the scene show the crane lorry ablaze as well as another vehicle by the verge.

Posting an update on Twitter, Thames Valley Police urged motorists to avoid the area: “M40 Southbound at J2 is currently closed due to a crane on fire. Likely to be shut for several hours.”

A Thames Valley Police spokesman warned the incident might affect Thursday’s morning rush hour because the carriageway had been badly damaged and would need to be resurfaced.

Highways England said all southbound  traffic was being diverted onto the A355 and then onto the A40.
