SADIQ Khan is fac­ing a huge back­lash af­ter the Lon­don Eye was lit up like an EU flag dur­ing the New Year’s fire­works dis­play.

The Mayor of Lon­don has been ac­cused of “politi­cis­ing” the event, with Brex­i­teers fu­ri­ous over the ap­par­ent stunt.

He even men­tioned the EU dur­ing the sold-out cel­e­bra­tion, tweet­ing: “Our one mil­lion EU ci­ti­zens are Lon­don­ers, they make a huge con­tri­bu­tion, and no mat­ter the out­come of Brexit – they will al­ways be wel­come.”

Tory MP An­drew Brid­gen said: “It’s very low to politi­cise what is an in­ter­na­tional pub­lic event.”
