This is the moment, amid the partygate scandal, that a lifelong Conservative voter told LBC she will never vote for the Tories again.

Louise in Potters Bar made the remark after it has emerged that parties took place in Downing Street on the night before Prince Philip's funeral.

"It's deeply regrettable that this took place at a time of national mourning, and Number 10 has apologised to the Palace," a spokesperson for the PM has said.

Louise explained LBC's Shelagh Fogarty she has been a Conservative voter her entire life and has "never not voted Conservative".

However, referring to the parries which took place on the night before Prince Philip's funeral, Louise went on to say: "Our Queen and the country [were] mourning Prince Philip. On the eve of his funeral, it's almost obscene.

"It's almost like they're sticking two fingers up to the British public."

She later said: "I will never vote Conservative again. It's disgusting."
