Prime Minister Liz Truss's speech at the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham was interrupted by two protesters.

The pair appeared to be with Greenpeace and brandished a flag with "who voted for this?" on it.

The protesters were then ejected from the conference by security and booed by those in attendance for interrupting the new Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister has been criticised in recent days for not seeking a new mandate from the British public for her new platform which differs from Boris Johnson's.

Liz Truss, who was made Prime Minister last month, was speaking to party members about her plans for the country.

She vowed to get Britain "through the tempest" and said that the country had seen "stormy days."

She added: “Together, we have mourned the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the rock on which modern Britain was built.

“We’re now in a new era under King Charles III.

“We’re dealing with the global economic crisis caused by Covid and by Putin’s appalling war in Ukraine.

“In these tough times, we need to step up.

“I’m determined to get Britain moving, to get us through the tempest and put us on a stronger footing as a nation."
