Melinda Messenger threw her backing behind anti-vaccine and anti-lockdown protesters in London with a post on social media.

People held signs and chanted “freedom” as they gathered in Parliament Square on Monday after almost all remaining coronavirus restrictions were lifted in England.

The 50-year-old presenter and former glamour model, who was born in Swindon, retweeted a video of protesters outside the parliament with the hashtags #ArrestBorisJohnson, #NoVaccinePassportsAnywhere, and #NoMandatoryVaccine.

Protesters were seen clashing with officers in the middle of the road on Parliament Street near Westminster Underground Station.
