Buckinghamshire Live reports:

Police have issued a CCTV image of a woman they wish to speak to following an anti-vaccine protest in Milton Keynes. A number of protesters descended onto the Central MK coronavirus testing site yesterday (December 29) with an individual spotted taking equipment from the facility.

An investigation into the incident is on-going, but no one has been arrested at this time. Police have now released an image of a woman they wish to speak to. Chief Inspector Graham Hadley, of Thames Valley Police, said: “We are carrying out a thorough investigation into the protest that happened yesterday.”

The BBC reports:

Police are appealing for information after anti-vaccine protesters targeted an NHS testing centre, shouted abuse at staff and appeared to damage equipment. Dozens entered the site in Milton Keynes on Wednesday, and were captured in videos shared on social media.

Videos of the event showed the marchers throwing traffic cones towards the marquee set up to administer tests, and knocking down signs for the testing centre. They could be heard accusing staff of “genocide” and some were chanting “shame on you”.

One protester appeared to take test kits and equipment away with her. Piers Corbyn, a prominent anti-vaccine campaigner, can be seen holding a microphone and walking with protesters through the test centre site.
