Conservative MP Michael Fabricant hit back at fellow Tory MP who appeared to ridicule him, behind his back, for 'wearing a wig'

As the MP for Lichfield stood to ask a question about Birmingham Airport during PMQs, the camera also caught MPs Huw Merriman and Kelly Tolhurst whispering to each other as one of them pointed at his hair.

Merriman appears to mouth the words "it's a wig", "definitely a wig" to Tolhurst and others on the other side of the House of Commons as he sat behind Fabricant.

Hitting back at Merriman, Fabricant tweeted:

This isn't the first time Fabricant's locks have been a point of discussion. In a 2014 interview with The Mirror, he admitted he had received some treatment on his hair.
