EU referendum: MP accuses Remain campaign of 'petty smears'

A leading Conservative EU exit campaigner has criticised "petty tabloid smears" by the Remain campaign, and suggested Downing Street is behind "vicious briefings" against his side.

MP Steve Baker called for an end to "personal nastiness" warning "deep divisions" in the party were emerging.

A Downing Street spokesman said "we don't accept" Mr Baker's claims.

Carole Walker reports.
