Broadcaster Eddie Mair has said the volume of EU referendum-related queries his news programme has received has raised questions about the way the campaigns are being reported.

Mair invited listeners of PM, his BBC Radio 4 news show, to email in questions and said they have been bombarded with messages.

Topics raised include whether we need new car number plates without the EU flag and will leaving mean more delays on parcels being sent from abroad.

He continued: “They’re good questions, right? And we’re happy to do our bit trying to answer them: it’s part of our public service role, I suppose. But if voters need to turn to us to answer such basic interesting questions, aren’t there more searching questions to be asked of all of us in the media about our reporting - and of the campaigns themselves?”
