They complain greater prominence has been given to negative stories about Brexit, while positive news gets ignored.

Conservative MP Nigel Evans says he found himself debating against three “anti-Brexit merchants” when he was a guest on the Victoria Derbyshire show.

He declared: “Sure it’s time during the next two years to have independent scrutiny of the BBC coverage of Brexit.

Its director general, Tony Hall believes the Brexit output is fair.

“If so, what is he possibly scared about having its contents checked for impartiality?”

The BBC has denied any bias and says it does not recognise the characterisation of its coverage.
