The Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage was visited by police after he travelled to Dover to report on migrants, the officers advised him not to breach the lockdown restrictions.
Farage said that last week police were “bombarded” with complaints after his journey to Dover, to report on the “illegal migrant scandal,” on Monday.
Farage said the police come to his home on Monday evening and advised him over the current guidelines.
The illegal migrant scandal is bigger than anybody realises.
Our government should stop the boats from coming, not help them to shore.

Farage said on Twitter, “Lockdown lunacy. Two police officers just knocked on my door to advise me on essential travel.
“They had received a complaint that I had been to Dover to report on the illegal migrant scandal taking place.
“What a total waste of time and money.”
He said on You Tube that he explained he had been “carrying out broadcasting duties” and he described himself as a “keyworker.”
