Cops hunt 'disgraceful' anti-vaxx thug who stormed Covid test site and took vital equipment

POLICE are hunting an anti-vaxxer who swiped vital equipment while storming a Covid test site.

Maskless protesters swamped the centre in Milton Keynes on Wednesday while chanting "Boris lied".


One woman was seen walking out with boxes of test tubes, swabs and other testing equipment despite Brits facing a lack of Covid tests.

Police are now hoping to speak with the anti-vax thug, who held up a sign reading: "Reclaim the NHS, end jabs tyranny now”.

They have released a picture of her while storming the test and trace centre.

Officers say no arrests have been made and inquiries are ongoing.

Chief Inspector Graham Hadley, of Thames Valley Police, said: “We are carrying out a thorough investigation into the protest that happened yesterday.

“As part of our enquiries, we believe the woman pictured may have information that could help our investigation.

A protester was heard telling the crowd to “keep it peaceful” but some members of the group entered the tent itself.

The protest comes as Brits are struggling to get hold of Covid tests in the run up to New Year's Eve celebrations tonight.

Ben Everitt, MP for Milton Keynes, later branded the mob "a bunch of d**kheads".

Boris Johnson today begged the five million unjabbed Brits to get the vaccine next year.

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.

The Sun's Jabs Army campaign is helping get the vital extra vaccines in Brits' arms to ward off the need for any new restrictions.

Boris pleaded in his New Year Eve address: “I want to speak directly to all those who have yet to get fully vaccinated.

“The people who think the disease can’t hurt them, look at the people going into hospital now. That could be you.

“Look at the intensive care units and the miserable, needless suffering of those who did not get their booster. That could be you.

“So, make it your New Year’s resolution. Find a walk-in centre or make an online appointment. Get that jab and do something that will make 2022 a happy New Year for us all.”

Anyone who recognises the woman has been asked to call police on 101, quoting reference 43210583457.
