BORIS Johnson abandoned plans to drop into a bakery during his visit to Somerset this morning due to a protest at the venue.

Mr Johnson pulled out of the visit to Burns the Bread in Glastonbury following his trip to West Monkton Primary School, neat Taunton, earlier in the morning.

He changed his plans after learning of a group of protestors, including climate change activists, anti-Brexit campaigners and a Labour supporter at the entrance to the business.

The BBC has reported that it is believed the visit was cancelled due to security concerns on the advice of police.
