Truck driver Richard calls James O'Brien to admit that he "feels stupid" for voting to leave the European Union and will say sorry to his 13-year-old son for that.

In the latest of a series of remarkable calls on the impact of the Brexit vote, Richard told James: "I've got a lump in my throat and I've got a tear in my eye. I'm just worried.

"You're not stupid," James reassured him.

"I feel like I'm articulate, I'm well-read, but to be sucked in by these lies!"

Movingly, the caller also said that he feels so bad about his vote, he plans on apologising to his 13-year-old son.

"How many people listening to me now are thinking: we're the same as Rich?

"My lad's 13. When he's older...I will apologise to him. I will say sorry to him."
