Mr Duncan Smith met plenty of people in the town who wanted to discuss the EU and tell him which way they were going to vote in the referendum on June 23.

He told the Journal that he was very pleased with the way the Vote Leave campaign was going. He said of his visit to Grantham: “I love the market, I love the people. I thought it was great and I met people, some who were undecided still, but also many who have said it’s time to go.”
