Nigel Farage claims he has been visited by police after he travelled more than 100 miles from his home to film a political broadcast during the lockdown.
The Brexit Party leader headed to the south coast last week to film a video rant about illegal immigrants, despite official warnings to stay at home in order to protect the NHS.
He made a second visit to the coast shortly after, filming a clip on a hill overlooking the port of Dover.
The police have since visited the former UKIP man after they were reportedly bombarded with complaints about his trips.
In a tweet this morning Mr Farage called the police visit “a total waste of time and money”.
He wrote: “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.”
His spokesman had earlier suggested the Brexit Party leader was acting as a broadcaster who enjoy key worker status as long as they are providing public service information.
