The UK Labour leader is calling for a full inquiry into the Paradise Papers.

The documents feature details of the Island's jet VAT refunds, including F1 star Lewis Hamilton's, as well as documents from Appleby and Estera, who both have offices in the Island.

Jeremy Corbyn wants a full inquiry, and is asking for public lists of company ownership and a new unit to tackle tax evasion.

A spokeperson for British Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed HMRC has asked to see the papers, but that investing in offshore jurisdiction like the Isle of Man is not an automatic sign of wrongdoing.
