Dramatic footage showed the Labour leader being shouted at by dozens of protesters outside Parliament.

He was then pushed into the back of a car as the protesters continued to swarm around him him whilst shouting ‘traitor’.

Sir Keir was joined outside Parliament by Labour’s shadow Foreign Secretary David Lammy, who appeared to help police shield his boss from the protesters. 

A Police statement said: ‘Shortly after 5.10pm on Monday, February 7, a man who had been surrounded by a group of protesters near to New Scotland Yard, was taken away from the scene by a police car.

‘A man and a woman were arrested at the scene for assault of an emergency worker after a traffic cone was thrown at a police officer. They have been taken into custody.’
