The two British camps in the EU referendum battle met today in a bizarre clash on the Thames on board a propaganda flotilla.
Sir Bob Geldof boarded a boat on the Thames to oppose Nigel Farage's pro-Brexit flotilla, which was making its way up the Thames towards parliament.
The rival sides clashed over the impact leaving the EU would have on the British fishing industry. 
The flotilla, of up to 35 boats, had been organised by Scottish skippers as part of the Fishing for Leave campaign.
