Footage has emerged showing members of the British Army using a photo of Jeremy Corbyn as target practice, ONAreports citing The Indpendent.

A 25-second clip showed at least four servicemen firing handguns towards a large image of the Labour Party leader standing at a podium displaying the party’s logo.

It was shared on Snapchat with the caption “happy with that”.

An Army spokesperson said: “We are aware of a video circulating on social media. This behaviour is totally unacceptable and falls well below the high standards the Army expects, and a full investigation has been launched.”

According to the Indpependent, the footage was filmed recently and features members of an elite parachute regiment.

It shows soldiers using simulation munition for target practice at a military range in the Afghan capital of Kabul.

The video provoked outrage as it circulated on social media.
