Theresa May says Field ‘suspended as a minister’
Tory MP Mark Field has been suspended as Asia and Pacific Minister after footage emerged of him attacking a climate protester at a bankers banquet last night.
Field attempted to justify the attack by claiming the protester might have been armed, but he grabbed her upper arms, shoulders and then neck as he manhandled the woman from the banquet hall, not her wrists as might be expected if a weapon was feared.
