Prime Minister Boris Johnson was in a minor car accident on Wednesday after a protester ran in front of the vehicle as he left Parliament. No one was hurt. Footage posted on social media showed a male stage in the race for the Jaguar money as he chased the doors of Parliament accompanied by a police outrider motorcycle and a Range Rover support vehicle.
Johnson’s car braked sharply and was struck from behind by the Range Rover, maintaining a wide tooth. He stopped for a moment before the procession departed.
The Prime Minister’s office confirmed Johnson was in the car and said there were no reports of injuries.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said at a press conference that Johnson was “completely unharmed. ”
The protester, who was thrown to the ground in the incident, was arrested by the police. The Metropolitan Police said he was arrested on suspicion of breaches of public order and for “obstructing the road. ”
Several groups protested outside Parliament in small numbers on Wednesday, including anti-Brexit and pro-Kurdish groups. Johnson was back at his office at 10 Downing Saint in his weekly Q&A with lawmakers when the accident happened.
