Romford's MP Andrew Rosindell got his wish as the BBC played 'God Save the Queen' last night - albeit with a twist.

It came after Mr Rosindell yesterday called on BBC One to play the national anthem at the end of each programming day, in honour of Brexit.

He believed it would send a message that “Britain is back” and would serve as a fitting tribute to the Queen who celebrated her 90th birthday this year.

The channel has not responded to the Conservative MP, but Newsnight on BBC Two obliged on last night’s programme as they played The Sex Pistols version of the anthem.
