Michael Gove ambushed by mob of anti-vaxxers

Michael Gove was shielded by police after being ambushed by a mob of anti-vaccine protesters.

The Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities was swarmed by the angry crowd - some of whom carried cameras and other equipment - as he walked through Westminster.

Police officers quickly stepped in to separate Mr Gove from the group, forming a human barrier around him.

The incident comes amid calls for increased protection for MPs, just days after Sir David Amess was murdered during a constituency surgery.
