NOBODY on Downing Street could hear Boris Johnson give his resignation speech, as protesters heckled him and renowned activist Steve Bray blasted “Bye Bye Boris” from near the gates.

Journalists there to watch the Prime Minister were frustrated by the excessive noise, which could be heard on the television broadcasts of the announcement too.

One National journalist at the scene said they "couldn't hear a thing" as crowds booed and shouted down the Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, The Guardian's Jessica Elgot said: "No one in the street can hear a word of Boris Johnson’s resignation statement because of the noise from the crowd at the gates, including the Bye Bye Boris song from Steve Bray."

Bray, who is a full-time protester at Westminster funded by his supporters, has been playing the Johnson-themed version of the Bay City Rollers hit throughout the week.

On Wednesday he interrupted the Good Morning Britain presenters with the song, but the hosts kept going.

The National:

Last week, the Remainer had his equipment seized by police.

Officers said the amplifers were being seized under section 145 of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, which was extended to a wider area around the Houses of Parliament that day.

But the anti-Conservative activist returned to Parliament Square, vowing to stage a protest “twice as loud”.

So-called "Stop Brexit Man" commented: “I’ve got more amps on order and I’m going to link four amps together – not this week, maybe next week – and it’ll be twice as loud as it was here to compensate for the move to the corner.

“In fact I’m going to wire eight together.”
