A Buzzfeed reporter, who was sitting behind Mr Carden, claims he heard him singing loudly.

He wrote: “When the chorus reached the word ‘Jude’, Mr Carden chanted at the top of his voice, ‘Jews, Jews, Jews’.”

Mr Carden, 33, has tweeted: “I have been categorical in my denial about allegations relating to a coach trip some twenty months ago.

“This was a coach full of journalists and MPs.

“If anyone genuinely believed any anti-Semitic behaviour had taken place, they would’ve had a moral responsibility… to report it immediately.

“Yet this allegation is only made now when a general election is imminent.”
