A farmer has claimed Boris Johnson set up a tent on his land without getting the OK from him first.
Kenny Cameron said the prime minister and his partner Carrie Symonds did not get permission from him before installing the bell tent in the Scottish peninsula of Applecross.
Mr Cameron claimed the couple, who were taking a holiday with their son Wilfred and dog Dilyn, had mistakenly thought the highlands field was part of the land of the cottage they were staying at.
He added they had also started a bonfire which was risky in dry weather.
Mr Cameron told the Mail Online: "Mr Johnson is meant to be leading the country and yet he is not setting a great example.
"Usually if people want to go inside a fenced area, they ask for permission first, but I was not asked at all. It is only polite to ask.
Mr Cameron also claimed Johnson and Symonds climbed a fence into his land using wooden chairs.
He added: "He could easily have damaged the fence by climbing over it as a short cut. There is a gate a little way up and they could have just used that.”
Johnson and Symonds were forced to cut short their stay in the Scottish peninsula after their location was leaked, according to the Sun.
A source told the newspaper the couple’s security did not think it was safe for them to remain.
They said the tent could be “spotted by a sniper from too far away”.
A government source confirmed to the PA news agency that the PM has returned from Scotland.
Pictures published in the Daily Mail on Friday showed a canvas bell tent erected near the cottage, which was said to boast “spectacular views” towards the islands of Raasay, Rona and Skye.
Yahoo News UK has approached the government for comment.
