From marching across England to crashing their own bus, the Brexit Party have a unique way of staging campaign stunts.

This weekend we were treated to another chapter of their impressive oeuvre of displays as Ann Widdecombe went on the campaign trail with a convoy of cars in tow.

The former Tory MP is campaigning to become the MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, a seat which swung to Labour in the 2017 general election.

A video posted by Brexit Party Torbay previewed what her convoy would look like and it's fair to say that she had quite a few vehicles in tow.

However, there is a problem here.

Eagle-eyed viewers noticed that barring Widdecombe's own car, which was a vintage 1960s Rover P5 model, most of the other motors were either from European manufactures and had been imported to the UK tariff-free or had been built in the UK thanks to our position in the EU.

The Torbay branch of the Brexit Party didn't directly comment on the mockery but they did seem to see the funny side of it.
