Top Tory Michael Gove has been escorted away swiftly from a protest by police after he was approached by a group of demonstrators in London.

Gove, the Communities Secretary in Boris Johnson’s cabinet, was chased into a Home Office building in Westminster by what appeared to be anti-vax protesters.

Footage shared on social media showed a number of people with video cameras surround the Cabinet Minister before several police officers encircled them and moved the protesters back before guiding Gove into a nearby building.

The incident comes amid concerns over security for MPs following the fatal stabbing of Southend West MP Sir David Amess last week.

The Metropolitan Police tweeted: “We’re aware of a protest in Westminster today which is marching to a number of locations.

“During this protest, a group attempted to surround a Member of Parliament on Horseferry Road.

“Our officers were immediately on scene where they safely escorted him to a nearby building.”
