Regulars at the Queen’s Head pub in Ampthill are being urged to vote for Brexit in Thursday’s EU referendum because they fear mandarins in Brussels could order them to change the pub’s name to “Chancellor Merkel’s Head” if the public votes to stay in the EU.

Patriotic landlord Richard Hammond, 55, said: “We’re not having any of that. Up the Queen.”
