Assaulted On London Underground - Man Arrested following footage of a man harassing Matt Hancock earlier this week in London

No one should harass or assault Politicians like this!

This behaviour is completely unacceptable. People have every right to be angry and frustrated with Matt Hancock and other MP's and decision makers over some of their unpopular handling of Covid and lockdowns but we defeat the policies that we disagree with using arguments based on facts, evidence and our values, not with intimidation or violence.

A 61-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly assaulting former health secretary Matt Hancock on the London Underground.

British Transport Police said in a statement: ‘We received a report of a man being assaulted and harassed at Westminster Underground station at 8.47am yesterday morning.

‘A 61-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of common assault and a public order offence and remains in custody.’ 

Mr Hancock was accompanied during the video by a London Underground worker, who calls for calm during the footage.

Video footage was posted online clearly showed a man shouting and following Mr Hancock through Westminster station and onto a train.

We understand that Mr Hancock was not thought to have been hurt in the incident - described by his spokesman as an "unpleasant encounter".

Hereford Voice covered a similar local story last August where local Cllr Gemma had to take leave from her council work due to constant threats and abuse, that article can be found here 👉 https://hfd.news/j_Cs
