Brian May has said the aftermath of the EU referendum has been "a disaster" for the UK because of the lack of preparation.

The Queen guitarist talked about Brexit during an interview with Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.

He said: "I don't blame the voters for voting out because I think they were given very good reasons, (but) the reasons turned out to be lies, unfortunately.

"They all got worried about immigration and they got worried about being dictated to by foreigners or whatever. But, of course, Brexit will not fix those things. That's the terrible thing."

He was on the show to discuss the campaign to oppose the government cull of badgers.
