50 MPs write to Met chief after Anna Soubry experiences angry mob and Nazi heckles

Disgusting Nazi chants were directed at Anna Soubry, Conservative MP for Broxtowe and Remain
campaigner, during live TV interviews yesterday.
A staunch pro-Brexit mob sang as Soubry was being interviewed on College Green by the BBC's Simon McCoy, Ms Soubry was being asked about Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal and the delayed Meaningful vote.

One man in a yellow jacket appeared to be live streaming, putting his phone in front of Ms Soubry, while another repeatedly shouted directly at the MP, asking her why she was "going against them" - seemingly in reference to her campaign for a second referendum. More than 50 MPs have since written to the Met Police commissioner, urging the police to better tackle abusive and threatening protestors outside parliament. Ms Soubry herself has criticised police for failing to step in. Lead image credit: UK Parliament
