EU referendum: Johnson on Remain column rumours

Prominent Vote Leave campaigner Boris Johnson has brushed off rumours that he prepared two newspaper columns - one backing leaving the EU and one backing remaining within it.

Mr Johnson, who eventually published a strident column advocating leaving the EU, told John Humphrys on the Today programme that he had "thought long and hard" over his decision.
