Angry scenes as protesters heckle Boris Johnson over Brexit

There were angry scenes this morning as people gathered to protest a lunch expected to be attended by Boris Johnson.

Around half a dozen people gathered to protest Britain's decision to leave the European Union - a campaign spearheaded by the Conservative MP.

Boris Johnson, who shocked many when he announced he was not running for leadership of the party, to have a private lunch with Tiverton & Honiton Conservatives.

Chants of "Boris is a liar, you're having lunch with a liar" could be head from the protesters.

The supporters could not be heard as Boris got out of his car - but instead he was greeted by a local resident who started by asking him his view on "leaving Europe" before moving on to England's calamitous crash out of Euro2016.
