Tory and Labour MPs back police protection for England’s chief medical officer after he was targeted twice over weekend
England’s chief medical officer, Prof Chris Whitty, has been harassed four times in recent months, including by anti-lockdown protesters, prompting growing concerns for his safety.
There are calls for Whitty to get police protection following the latest incidents over the weekend when he was targeted in a Westminster park on Sunday, a day after demonstrators gathered outside what they thought was his home and shouted “murderer”.
