Boris Johnson threw himself into the waves of the Bay of Biscay shortly before 7am this morning.

Mr Johnson told ITV News: 'From here you cannot tell there is a gigantic hole in that rock. There is a way through. My point to the EU is that there is a way through, but you can't find the way through if you just sit on the beach'
