Live factchecking Cameron and Farage #ITVEUref

9 June 2016 | Amy Hawkins

As we edge ever closer to referendum day on June 23rd, figures from both sides of the campaign are eager to answer voters' questions about all things EU-related. And we're eager to give voters the facts. That's why the Full Fact team decamped to ITV's studios on Tuesday, to live factcheck David Cameron and Nigel Farage as they answered questions from a studio audience. It was a late night, but claims can reach people at any hour of the day, and we want to make sure the facts do too.
