BBC Question Time will be broadcast from Boston tonight (Thursday) - and we can expect Brexit to be top of the bill.

The political panel debate show will feature Priti Patel, Secretary of State for International Development, Emily Thornberry, Shadow Foreign Secretary, Suzanne Evans from UKIP, playwright Bonnie Greer and Sun columnist Rod Liddle.

In an interview for BBC Radio Lincolnshire, host David Dimbleby said: “I think what is really interesting about Boston for me is this curious statistic that it voted out with the highest Brexit vote in the whole of the UK with about 75 per cent

“As always with Question Time we will talk about anything and everything anyone wants to talk about but I think the feeling about how the Brexit negotiations are going, whether they are being handled well will be top of the list I suspect.”

The show previously visited Boston High School in November 2013, and featured politicians Anna Soubry, Emily Thornberry, then UKIP leader Nigel Farage, poet Benjamin Zephaniah and author Vicky Pryce.

Immigration took up 27 minutes of the hour-long show.
