Barack Obama leaves Britain amid cheers and jeers


Barack Obama has jetted out of Britain, as politicians continue to argue over his dramatic intervention in the Brexit battle.  

Mr Obama provoked a whirlwind of both cheers and jeers during what is likely to be his his final visit to the country as US president.

He is due to land in Germany on Sunday afternoon, where he will finish his tour of the Middle East and Europe.

Before leaving, Mr Obama reinforced his stark statement that the UK would be at "the back of the queue" for a beneficial economic arrangement if it breaks away from Brussels.

The Leave camp have been left infuriated by the president's outspoken support for the EU, but young people in London gave him rapturous applause during a town hall-style meeting on Saturday.

The president used the meeting to urge young people to reject cynics telling them they cannot change the world.
