Leading Leave campaigner, and current Justice Minister, Dominic Raab has indicated Britons could need visas to travel to the continent in the event of a Brexit.

Raab said the possibility could not be ruled out if Britain wanted more secure borders and insisted the issue would be a matter for post-withdrawal negotiations with the EU.

Speaking to the Sunday Politics show he said: "I think we'd have to look at that as part of the negotiations in detail. But I think, look, at the moment President (Barack) Obama's administration ... is looking at new visa requirements and screening from Germany, Belgium, Greece, France, because of the recent terrorist attacks. I think we should at least have the power and the control to do that and make sure we keep Britain safe."

Pressed if this would mean British citizens would need visas to go to France, or Germany, Raab said: "Or some other kind of check."
