Boris Johnson spent yesterday (Monday) campaigning in Cornwall, supporting St Ives Conservative Derek Thomas in the morning and North Cornwall's Scott Mann in the afternoon.

In St Ives he was confronted by a handful of hecklers who wanted to know why he had promised an extra £350 million a week for the National Health Service, if Britain voted to leave the European Union, when no such benefit now appeared likely.  Mr Johnson declined to answer.

But in Wadebridge in the afternoon he got a generally warmer welcome, going walkabout in Molesworth Street and posing for "selfies" with passers-by.

There are now fewer than three weeks to go before the 8th June general election.
