The Prime Minister's been to the country's oldest brewery today - Shepherd Neame, in Faversham. It was a little early in the day for a picture opportunity with a pint. But it was a good time, he told workers there, to get ready to vote to stay inside the European Union. That vote's due in less than three week's time.

Despite an eleventh hour deal late last night to call off the junior doctors' 24 hour strike, it was too late for patients who had already had their treatment cancelled.
Among them, Alainah Rook from Faversham who is frequently hospitalised and who was due to have an important diagnostic treatment. That was postponed when the hospital thought it wouldn't have enough doctors.
But this is her reaction - Alainah is still supporting the doctors.
