Shelagh Fogarty got tough with this caller when he repeatedly misquoted her views on immigration.

Andy in Farnham said the LBC presenter wanted to “let everybody in” - a position Shelagh strongly rejected.

The row was sparked moments after the Home Office announced it was to axe immigration removal targets.

The announcement came a day after Home Secretary Amber Rudd said they did not exist.

But - Andy was insistent a strong immigration policy was vital.

“What you’ve got to understand is a majority of people voted to leave the EU and have a strong immigration policy,” he said.

“You’re now saying: ‘Let everybody in’.”

Shealgh swiftly rejected the claim as she called for improved border checks and an immigration policy that’s “pragmatic”.

She added: “I am not saying that, I do not think that, I’ve said the opposite in the last hour.”

But, that didn’t stop Andy later repeating his accusation: “Why are you so weak at protecting our country?”

And it was at this point, Shelagh got fed up of repeating herself.

She retorted: “Have you actually got ears Andy that work?”

Watch the pair got head-to-head above.
