Sarah Olney's interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer was cut short by her press officer after a brutal grilling from our presenter.

The interview lasted just three minutes before the newly elected Richmond Park MP was dragged off air.

Julia began by mischievously asking "when's the second by-election?" before suggesting the Richmond Park voters didn't really know what they were voting for - echoing the claims made by Remainers seeking a re-run of the EU referendum.

Our presenter also pointed out that Olney's margin of victory was similar to that achieved by the Leave campaign in June.

Olney insisted she and her fellow Lib Dems accept the result of the EU referendum and merely want a further vote on the terms of Brexit - prompting scorn from Julia.

The interview ended with Olney falling silent, before her press officer ended the call. 

Listen to the interview above.
