British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was accused of avoiding a television interview by retreating into a fridge on Wednesday (Dec 11), on the eve of the country's general election.

Johnson was approached by the TV news crew while on an early morning campaign event at a dairy in Pudsey, West Yorkshire.

He is heard saying he will be with the crew in "five seconds" before walking away and into a large fridge stacked with milk bottles.
