Boris Johnson has clashed with Labour MP Chuka Umunna over campaigning ahead of the EU Referendum.

The MP for Streatham accused the Mayor of London of advocating a 'leave' vote to further his own political career.

Mr Umunna said: "What you need to understand, this isn't about you. This is about our city."

But Mr Johnson retorted: "Nor is it about you, quite frankly. This is about the prospects of the British people and about their democracy.

"It is very sad that people are being invited to remain is a system which I think is less and less democratic.

"We have a huge opportunity now to strike out for freedom and all you hear from the Remain campaign is gloom and negativity about our chances."

Mr Johnson claimed that the Labour MP had claimed half of new laws in this country are made in Brussels, something that he denied.

Boris urged Chuka to "man up", to which the response was "No, you man up."

But blogger Adam Bienkov tweeted this evidence shortly afterwards.
