Boos and cries of 'Stop Brexit' greeted Theresa May as she arrived in Edinburgh.
The prime minister was visiting the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as the city celebrated the massive arts festival.
But as she arrived for their performance at Edinburgh's Assembly Hall she was greeted by heckles.
'Any plans for when the government collapses, Theresa?' shouted one, while others demanded that she 'stop Brexit'.
Comic Janey Godley, who is performing at the Fringe, shouted at her: 'Theresa, are you coming in the show? We've got a food bank.'
