Boris Johnson has pulled out of today's (14 November) planned visit to a Glastonbury bakery after a large group of protestors gathered outside.

The Tory leader was set to visit Glastonbury's Burns The Bread bakery this afternoon, but changed plans at the last minute, visiting another branch of the bakery in Wells instead.

Serving sausage rolls to customers in Wells, he explained the change of location:
