Boris Johnson appeared lost for words yesterday as he was reprimanded by a man in Leeds who told him he should be in Brussels negotiating Brexit.

Mr Johnson, who was in Yorkshire walking through the town, campaign-style, was was accosted by the man who yelled: 'You should be in Brussels negotiating. You are not. You are in Morley in Leeds.'

Mr Johnson retorted: 'What I think people want us to do, is to leave the European Union on October 31.'
