Covid UK: Anti-vaxxer mob storm Milton Keynes testing site during rally attended by Piers Corbyn

Anti-vax activists stormed a Covid testing site and marched through the facility where protesters tore down signs, threw traffic cones and appeared to steal medical supplies. 

Demonstrators in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, were filmed shouting ‘shame on you’ repeatedly at testing site staff.

Some held placards which bore slogans including ‘BBC: Just a bunch of WOKERS!’, ‘Fear is the currency of control’ and ‘Boris lied, people died’, while others threw traffic cones and pushed over signs. 

Cries of ‘You murdering b****rds’ and ‘The wind is changing’ are heard as the crowd marches into the site, and one of the demonstrators appears to pick up testing equipment before carrying it out of one of the site’s tents. 

One of the protesters is seen asking a member of staff in a high visibility jacket: ‘Have you had the vaccine yourself?’ 

The social media user who uploaded footage of the incident, which has been viewed 10,000 times, claimed that one protester ‘steals testing equipment and dumps in a bin outside the centre’. 

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police told MailOnline that it is aware of an anti-vaccination protest which took place this afternoon and moved across different areas of the town, including a Covid testing centre.

The force said it will ‘take swift action and bring offenders to justice’ where necessary.

It came on the same day that Boris Johnson visited a vaccination centre in Milton Keynes, urging people to get tested before New Year’s Eve festivities.

Anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist Piers Corbyn, 74, could not be seen in the footage, but he was pictured at the anti-vaccination so-called ‘Freedom Rally’ in Milton Keynes today. 

Tory MP Alicia Kearns branded the video ‘utterly appalling’, adding: ‘Thank you to all the volunteers and staff who deserve so much better than this shameful, self-aggrandising nonsense.’

Meanwhile, speaking at a vaccination centre in Milton Keynes today, Mr Johnson told reporters: ‘Everybody should enjoy New Year but in a cautious and sensible way – take a test, ventilation, think about others but, above all, get a booster.’ 

The clip comes after it was revealed earlier this month that Piers, the brother of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, had been arrested on suspicion of encouraging people to attack MPs’ offices.

He was arrested in south London in the early hours of December 19 relating to a video posted online ‘in which people were encouraged to burn down MPs’ offices,’ the force said.  

In the video, posted online, Mr Corbyn says: ‘We have got to get a bit more physical. It means we have to take down these lying vaccinators and we got to take down these lying MPs and things.

‘We got to support and welcome all of those who have rebelled or voted against Boris, ie rebelled from the Tories or my brother and his mates – they voted against the measures yesterday, which is a step forward.

‘We have got to support all those and we’ve got to hammer to death those scum, those scum who have decided to go ahead with introducing new fascism.

‘You’ve got to get a list of them … and if your MP is one of them, go to their offices and, well, I would recommend burning them down, OK. 

‘But I can’t say that on air. I hope we’re not on air.’

His comments were widely condemned, with Mayor of London Sadiq Khan calling them ‘despicable and dangerous’, and Home Secretary Priti Patel describing the video as ‘sickening’. 

Ms Patel had urged police to take ‘the strongest possible action’ against Mr Corbyn.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said the force ‘is aware of an anti-vaccination protest that took place in central Milton Keynes this afternoon.’

He added: ‘Where criminal offences have been disclosed, we will take swift action and bring offenders to justice.

‘If anyone has any information or wishes to report they can do by calling 101 or online quoting reference 604 29/12/2021.’
