Today, politicians and authorities have reacted to the sudden attack of a test and trace centre in Milton Keynes by a group of Covid vaccine sceptics protesters who claimed that they have “woken up.”
Video footage from the scene of the Milton Keynes Theatre showed that children were frightened while the rioters abused staff and appeared to be stealing equipment.
A dozen anti-vaccine protesters held signs denouncing the vaccine as “experimental” ones that “kill.”
Matthew Barber, Police & Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley, said it was “appalling” to see the protest “escalate into something much uglier.”
He added: “All of the events of today will be reviewed to help plan for future protest events and ensure that colleagues in the NHS can continue their fantastic work in delivering the vaccine rollout.”
Thames Valley Police said that no arrests had been made but had footage of the incident.
“Thames Valley Police is aware of an anti-vaccination protest that took place in central Milton Keynes this afternoon,” a spokesperson said.
“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.”
