A BAYING Mob of angry anti-vaxxers stormed the Television Centre complex in West London on Monday – home of ITV’s daytime programmes Good Morning Britain, Lorraine, This Morning and Loose Women – in protest at child vaccinations and the BBC.
Despite declaring that the protest against the BBC, the protesters seemed to forget that the corporation moved most of its operations from Television Centre in 2013, to MediaCity in Salford and BBC Broadcasting House in Central London – ITV is now the major tenant at White City.
One protester directed the mob to the Beeb’s former TVC HQ and said: “It might be going towards the BBC…it looks like we’re going to White City guys”.
They then shouted “shame on you, shame on you”, and one loudmouth protester gave a speech declaring the BBC was “not giving out the right information” and screaming “they are coming for our f children.”
Around one-hundred protesters took part in the attempted attack on the former BBC HQ and failed to gain entry into the open complex that has now been turned into flats and TV studios ran by StudioWorks.
Police were outnumbered and struggled to hold the mob back until extra officers were drafted in to cope with the protest.
The demonstration was organised by a group called ‘Official Voice’ and is against vaccine passports and child vaccinations.
Official Voice said the ‘media is the problem’ and said ‘the lies will end’ and urged people to attend the protest taking place today and directed anger towards BBC News.
Loose Women presenter Charlene White tweeted: “Huge thanks to Andy and the security team over at Television Centre. The protesters attempted to gain access to the building while we were live on air with @loosewomen – and we’ve only just left, because of safety.”
The Metropolitan Police said in a statement: “We’re aware of a group of demonstrators who, having set off from Shepherds Bush Green at around 1pm, are now gathered outside a commercial premises in Wood Lane, White City. There have been no arrests but officers are in attendance and will continue to monitor the situation.”
