The former UKIP donor, Arron Banks - who co-founded the Leave.EU campaign - writes in the Sunday Times to urge Brexit supporters to join the Tories to help unseat Theresa May as prime minister and install, what he calls, "a true Brexiteer" such as Boris Johnson or Jacob Rees-Mogg.

The museum tells the paper it's looking into the request.
