Vote Leave threatens ITV with legal action over referendum event

The Vote Leave campaign has threatened to take legal action after ITV announced David Cameron and Nigel Farage would take part in a live EU referendum event.

Vote Leave described the absence of a Conservative cabinet minister to appear at the same event as the prime minister as an "outrage" and that "ITV have effectively become part of the 'In' campaign".

The two party leaders will each take questions from a studio audience during an hour-long programme moderated by Julie Etchingham.

"Cameron and Farage Live: The EU Referendum" will be broadcast at 9pm on Tuesday June 7 and is the first of two live events on ITV ahead of the vote.
