Joey Essex question leaves Ed Miliband stumped

Ex-Labour leader Ed Miliband has deflected a question from reality TV star Joey Essex, by asking young voters to answer a question on his behalf at a campaign rally.

Mr Essex had questioned Mr Miliband about the French "nicking our fish" at a Remain campaign event, and raised concerns of friends - who work at Billingsgate fish market - about French trawlers.

Mr Miliband initially asked four young voters to answer the question on his behalf.

He said: "This is a politician's way of.. hospital pass here".

Mr Essex was among a specially invited audience in north London to hear Mr Miliband warn young voters they needed to register in order to stop the UK leaving the EU.
