An England fan watching the Women’s World Cup goes viral after interrupting a BBC News presenter by shouting ‘f**k the Tories’ live on air.
Presenter Joe Inwood could be seen walking around the Boxpark venue for BBC News, with a group of supporters watching England’s game against China on the big screen.
One male walked up to the reporter and faced the camera before singing, straight away the presenter wants his reaction and points the mic in the fan’s face, but little did he know what was about to be belted out for all to hear… “f**k the Tories!” just like Paul Mullin had previously on his boots!

The taken aback BBC presenter could be seen quickly saying sorry to everyone watching the live coverage.
He quickly tried to regain control of the situation, moving out of the way of the male to make sure he was no longer on screen.
“I’m so so- I do apologise about that, I’m sorry about that,” the presenter said quickly.
After the video surfaced and went viral on Twitter, Inwood shared the clip himself and added: “Joking aside, these things can and do happen when broadcasting live. Not much to be done, other than apologise and move on. Amusing that the worst behaved person at the match was the elderly man, rather than any of the children!.”
As it happened, England’s Women’s team comfortably won 6-1 against China and could have won by more goals.
The Lionesses go to the top spot in Group D and it means they will face Nigeria next Monday (8th August) in the last 16.
Lauren James netted twice and assisted three other England goals with Alessia Russo, Lauren Hemp, Chloe Kelly and Rachel Daly also on the scoresheet.
Shanshan Wang scored second-half penalty for China.
England Manager Sarina Wiegman:
“I’m very delighted, it shows how adaptive this team is and I think they are enjoying themselves on the pitch.
“[Lauren James] feels good, you can tell. She did special things today. Unfortunately, that one was cancelled but she flows up the pitch.
“I think we expected from China that they will press because they have to win to go through. We just stayed in shape, they expected us to play this way and they didn’t find a solution.
“I wanted to try other [players], and give Katie [Zelem] some space in the centre to create many opportunities. I think it also is pretty aggressive when Lucy [Bronze] and Rachel [Daly] can just press up quickly, in possession and out of possession, today that worked really well.”
