Man held after ‘attack on Labour MP Jess Phillips’s office’

A MAN has been arrested after trying to ‘kick in the door’ of Labour MP Jess Phillips’s constituency office while shouting that she was a ‘fascist’.

The MP for Birmingham Yardley told LBC Radio: ‘My staff had to be locked into my office while the man tried to smash the windows and kick in the door, I believe.’

Ms Phillips (above) was among MPs who told Boris Johnson to apologise in the Commons on Wednesday, saying his language had been designed to ‘inflame hatred and division’.

West Midlands Police confirmed a 36-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of a public order offence. Ms Phillips also tweeted on Wednesday she had received an ‘anonymous letter’ containing a death threat.
