Tearful Laurence Fox branded the Government 'a disgrace' last night for shutting schools as he likened it to taking a child's liver out to give to a pensioner.

The actor and political activist, 42, was choked with emotion as he said he thought kids deserved an education.

And he said it would reduce children's opportunities and questioned if they would soon forget what 'school was for'.

Fox - who has repeatedly challenged lockdown restrictions - said: 'I’m furious with the Government.

'I don’t think our children deserve this and I think they are doing this for political reasons, sorry to be emotional.

'I think they are doing it for political reasons, I don’t think they are doing it for the sake of our children and I think on principle, our children deserve an education they deserve it, it’s our duty to provide it to them at any cost.

'We are taking out the liver of a young, healthy child and giving it to an old person or a vulnerable person.'
