AN MP labelled anti-vaxx thugs as d**k heads after they stormed a Covid test and trace site and REMOVED vital equipment.
Ben Everitt, a Tory representing Milton Keynes, tweeted footage showing hundreds of mask-less demonstrators descending on the tented site.

“What a bunch of d**kheads,” he wrote.
“The staff & volunteers at our vax centres do an amazing job. I hope @ThamesVP get the evidence needed to bring these morons to justice.”
Mr Everitt went on to praise the NHS workers and volunteers at the site and added: “Nobody deserves this at work.”
“If you have any videos or info, call 101 or report online with ref 604 29/12/2021.”
A string of hugely positive studies show Omicron IS milder than other strains, with the first official UK report revealing the risk of hospitalisation is 50 to 70 per cent lower than with Delta.
Covid booster jabs protect against Omicron and offer the best chance to get through the pandemic, health officials have repeatedly said.
Trending In The News’s Jabs Army campaign is helping get the vital extra vaccines in Brits’ arms to ward off the need for any new restrictions.
In the footage circulating online, one man is seen picking up orange cones and firing them at the centre’s entrance.
Stressed security workers are seen walking around in high vis vests and speaking into walkie talkies while members of the crowd videoed and heckled them.
A protester over a megaphone is heard telling the crowd to “keep it peaceful” but moments later, some members of the group storm the testing centre.
One woman posed for pictures inside the site holding a sign reading “Reclaim the NHS, end jabs tyranny now”.
She then picks up boxes of test tubes, swabs and other testing equipment before walking out with a smile on her face.
Today’s protest comes as Brits are struggling to get hold of coronavirus tests in the run-up to New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid blamed the shortage on global supply issues, as Omicron forced people to ramp up testing.
People have today flocked to the Government portal to access tests, some have been met with disappointment.
The Health Secretary revealed a global shortage of lateral flow and PCR tests was impacting the UK.
He set out the situation in a phone call with Tory MP Sir Roger Gale, who added: “A British company that is making them has ramped up its production line fourfold and we are buying the lot, plus anything we can get from anywhere else around the world, but we are competing in a global market.”
As of this morning, people trying to order lateral flow kits for home delivery have been told there is none available.
There are also currently no PCR tests available for home delivery and there are also none for essential workers.
As well as this there is currently no availability for drive-in/walkthrough sites for PCRs in the whole of England.
There are ‘very few’ available in Scotland, none in Northern Ireland – but there is full availability in Wales.
Trending In The News has contacted Thames Valley Police and the UKHSA for comment.
