Labour MP Stella Creasy says she was forced to walk out of the House of Commons debate on air strikes in Syria because people are ringing her offices and abusing her staff.
It comes after the Walthamstow MP faced a protest in her constituency on Tuesday night.
Ms Creasy, who insists she is yet to make up her mind on the Syria vote, tweeted: “For christs sake - I want to listen to debate in chamber but people ringing my office abusing my staff so dipping out to check ok!”
MPs are taking part in a 10-hour debate before a vote to decide whether the UK should extend airstrikes in Syria.
More than 500 people took part in the protest in Ms Creasy's constinuency, marching from a local mosque and ending up outside her offices.
When asked via Twitter whether she planned to vote for or against the extension of airstrikes in Syria, she replied that she made “no apology for wanting to properly weigh up actual proposal.”
The backlash against Ms Creasy is indicative of the pressure being placed upon MPs and Prime Minister David Cameron by constituents as they approach the vote this evening.
