Tonight from 7.00pm, LBC will be hosting a 90-minute Labour leadership hustings.

The format is promised to be "very different", presenter Iain Dale has told us. "It will feature four ‘ask me anything’ slots, where each of the candidates will face questions from the other three. Listeners will phone in with their questions, and there will be a couple of surprises."

Jeremy Corbyn has a commanding poll lead, according to the latest information. Former Prime Minister Tony Blair said in an interview today that Labour has "rediscovered losing". Labour announces its new leader on 12 September.

The debate will be broadcast from LBC's new HD-video equipped studios, carried on LBC on FM, DAB, DTV and available online in live video. Here's how to listen to LBC.
