Activists behind an anti-Brexit stunt that rebranded Kent as the “Toilet of England” have said police have better things to do than investigate their prank.

Signs across the county were changed by a group of campaigners opposed to Brexit.

Where before motorists would be politely informed they were entering the Garden of England – as Kent is known – the new message read: “Welcome to Kent The Toilet of England”.

The stunt aimed to highlight fears of huge lorry queues along the county’s motorways, with suggestions that portable toilets will have to be installed on roadsides for use by delayed drivers.
