Led By Donkeys, which has become known for a series of high profile stunts, beamed a two minute clip featuring a number of recent ill-tempered bust-ups with people in Doncaster and across Yorkshire onto the side of the historic building in Barker's Pool.


Passers-by stopped and watched the footage – although its is not clear when it was filmed or when the clip was projected onto the building.

It was shared by Led By Donkeys on Twitter earlier today with the message: “The people have turned against Boris Johnson. Now let's turn out to vote.”

The footage shows Mr Johnson visiting flood hit Doncaster – but being harangued by locals angry at his response to South Yorkshire’s flood crisis.

“Boris, you’re a liar,” “shame on you” and “you took your time Boris” are all shouting out at the PM in the montage, which some people stopped to film on mobile phones.

And the stunt was met with praise on Twitter.

Footage of Boris Johnson was beamed onto the side of Sheffield City Hall.

One Twitter user wrote: “That's a f****** beautiful thing. Keep shouting!”

Another posted: “Great work!” while another wrote: “Amazing work. I felt tears in my eyes. If there is a heaven your seat is locked in.”

Another tweet read: “You guys absolutely rock! Thank you for all you do.”

Led by Donkeys uses satire targeted at pro-Brexit politicians and since its creation in December 2018, its four founders have posted billboards targeting politicians across the country.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's confrontations with flood victims were all featured in the footage.

They won the award for Best Social Media Campaign in the 2019 Social Purpose Awards and the founders have recently released a book entitled 'Led by donkeys: How four friends with a ladder took on Brexit' about their creation.
