Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has sparked anger among voters and military leaders alike after the Tory party leader appeared to snub veterans when he skipped a ceremony to commemorate fallen D-Day soldiers in order to take part in a pre-recorded TV interview.

The PM, who surveys predict is on track to lose the election, has been widely criticised by military officials for leaving behind a handful of surviving veterans and their families to drum up voter support with ITV.

Earlier on Thursday June 6, Mr.Sunak had been in France to pay his respects alongside King Charles, Queen Camilla, and a host of world leaders, but chose to cut his visit short to fly back to the UK from the beaches at Normandy in order to film a pre-recorded interview segment, reports the Mirror.

As a result, the PM missed a major memorial service in commemoration of the milestone 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings which were instrumental in helping the Allied forces to win World War II.
