A Tory Brexiteer was faced with the wrath of a fellow Leaver, who branded him a liar and a traitor during a television interview.

David Davies, the MP for Monmouth, was speaking to BBC Wales about a rise in abuse against MPs when he was confronted by the woman.

Hitting back at the Brexit voter, Mr Davies told her: “You are not a Brexiteer…

Speaking to the camera, Mr Davies, who has started wearing a body camera to and from Parliament in response to intimidation, says: "And that's what you put up with when you're out here all the time.”

Welsh Assembly member Alun Davies re-tweeted the video clip and praised the politician for how he handled the incident.

"But we also need a conversation about how we can disagree with each other, have a serious debate and rebuild our politics. In Wales and the UK," he added.

The Monmouth MP replied saying he "100%" agreed.
