WATCH: Bill Shorten heckled over asylum seeker policy

BILL Shorten has faced his own heckler in a campaign trail stop at Brisbane, days after a single mum gave Malcolm Turnbull a public dressing down. 

Mr Shorten was giving a speech on education when protester Adrian Skerritt stood up in the audience to have his say on the issue of asylum seekers, the ABC reported.

Videos of the event show Mr Skerritt shouted across the room and urged Mr Shorten to extend his compassion to refugees.

Mr Skerritt spoke to media after his protest inside and told reporters he would be betraying the refugee children he teaches if he did not speak up.
