Ms Jenkyns tweeted a picture of the graffiti this morning and said it is just one of many acts of vandalism and abuse written on her office door, which she says is from "remain-backing activists."

"We must moderate our language and it has to come from the Prime Minister first, so I would be interested in hearing his opinion he should be absolutely ashamed of himself."

Ms Jenkyns said today:" They can't be any double standards on abuse towards elected representatives or anybody for that matter.

"We need to come together as a nation to find closure, respect each other's views and by delivering on the democratic decisions voted by the majority.
