Shouting heard during Rishi Sunak and Keir Starmer’s last debate of general election campaign

Shouting could be heard outside a BBC debate between Rishi Sunak and Sir Keir Starmer on Wednesday, 26 June.

Pro-Palestine protesters calling for a ceasefire in Gaza could be heard shouting as they stood outside the Nottingham Trent University building while the party leaders took part in the debate.

Host Mishal Hussain confirmed the demonstration was taking place and apologised to viewers and the audience.

“If anyone can hear any noises off ladies and gentlemen, or anyone at home, there is a protest taking place outside which is also an aspect of our democracy, and people exercising their free speech,” the broadcaster said.
