BORIS Johnson visited Stratford in a bid to rally support for Britain to leave the EU.

The Tory MP and Leave Campaign figurehead stopped off at the DCS Group on Monday (June 6) where he was joined by Justice Secretary Michael Gove, MP Gisela Stuart and Chairman of the Vote Leave Business Council, John Longworth.

The hour-long visit saw the foursome given a private tour of the factory on Timothy’s Bridge Road, which is run by prominent town businessman Denys Shortt.

With just over three weeks before the EU Referendum takes place on June 23, Mr Shortt – a pro-Brexit campaigner – spoke in favour of Britain voting to leave the EU.

Mr Johnson and his fellow Brexiteers then addressed staff at the company headquarters before answering questions.
