A section on the official “UK Prime Minister” Facebook account called “This is GREAT Britain” leads to a blank page with the words “Page not found”.

The gaffe was spotted by journalist Dan O’Donoghue, who posted a screenshot of the page just before Boris Johnson’s “PeoplePMQs” live video started.

It is not clear what the point of the page is or why it is titled in the style of an angry middle-aged man's tweet.

The section was still on the account and still empty just after 1pm on Wednesday.
