MEP Ashley Fox storms out of EU referendum interview

A leading Tory MEP stormed out of a television interview in a row over the EU referendum.

Ashley Fox, the South West MEP who leads the Conservative group in the European Parliament, was asked why he would not debate the EU referendum in a "blue on blue" exchange with a pro-Brexit Conservative MEP.

Mr Fox told BBC South West political correspondent Martyn Oates he would "not play that stupid game".

Following the walkout, Conservative press officer Robert Taylor was heard to tell the production crew they had been "a bit naughty".
