PROFESSOR Chris Whitty could be put under police protection after being mobbed by two vile thugs in a London park.
But England’s top medic, who is “leading the war on Covid”, has told cops NOT to press charges – despite shocking video showing him being put in a headlock and shoved.
Whitty has recently been harassed four times in recent months, including by anti-lockdown protesters who yelled ‘murderer’ outside his house.
And Home Secretary Priti Patel confirmed she was looking at “the right kind of support” after the nation’s top doctor was grabbed and shouted at by louts while walking in St James’s Park.
The clip, which has been viewed more than 500,000 times online, shows two idiots cheering, jeering and grabbing hold of the Covid expert.
Meanwhile, figures from the Office for National Statistics show deaths from all causes are below average again thanks to lockdown restrictions – the 14th week out of the last 16 that has taken place.
