Britain faces a "tidal wave" of new laws from the EU if it remains part of the bloc, a leading Brexit campaigner has warned.

Brussels has a locker full of new plans - but is holding back until after the June 23 referendum, according to Chris Grayling, the Tory minister and Commons leader.

Mr Grayling will make the claims at a Grassroots Out rally in Stoke-on-Trent today as he joins forces for the first time with Ukip leader Nigel Farage.

He is due to say: "Things may seem a bit quiet in Brussels at the moment. There don't seem to be many new laws being brought forward.

"But don't be deceived. It's not a sign that they have suddenly seen the light. They're holding it all back until we've voted, in the hope that we won't realise that there is another tidal wave of More Europe heading our way."
