“An adviser to the health secretary, Matt Hancock [pictured here today at the hosputal in question]
has been involved in a confrontation with protesters outside a Leeds hospital during a Conservative general election campaign visit.
Conservative sources claimed on Monday afternoon that the adviser had been hit by one of the protesters. But a video that quickly emerged appeared to show the adviser walking into a protester’s arm.
West Yorkshire Police later said they were “unaware of any reports” of an incident involving election campaigners at the hospital. …”
