Man runs into Prime Minister David Cameron in Leeds

Man Runs Into David Cameron Leeds

A member of the public ran into David Cameron today as he left a meeting in Leeds.

He collided with the Prime Minister shortly before being led away by Mr Cameron’s security team as Mr Cameron got into a waiting vehicle.

Mr Cameron, who was leaving the city’s Civic Hall, did not fall over and was driven away from the scene apparently uninjured.

The police took the 28-year-old man away, who is believed to have been sprinting to a nearby gym.

He was arrested but later released.

Chief Inspector Derek Hughes said: ‘‘Around midday today, a 28-year-old local man was briefly arrested after he came close to the Prime Minster’s group, who had just left the Civic Hall in Leeds.

“No threats were made, and after the man’s details were checked, he was de-arrested and allowed on his way.”
