Labour responds to footage showing intimidation and harassment of BBC journalist by anti-lockdown protesters

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, reacting to footage showing the intimidation and harassment of a BBC journalist by anti-lockdown protesters, said:

“This extremely disturbing footage showing clear intimidation of a journalist while carrying out his job is absolutely unacceptable and should be condemned in the strongest terms.

“It is shocking that a BBC lanyard makes someone a target like this.”
