LONDON (Reuters) – A subsequent man has been charged over an episode in which the British government’s top clinical counsel was confronted in a London park, police said on Tuesday.
Film distributed via web-based media last week showed Chris Whitty, who has gotten quite possibly the most unmistakable authorities across Britain during the Covid pandemic, being snatched by two scoffing, smiling men.
Criminal investigators said the occurrence happened on June 27 in St James’ Park when officials had become “mindful of a man being addressed by a gathering of men”. They said the casualty didn’t endure any wounds.
Police said they had charged a subsequent man, Jonathan Chew, 24, with normal attack and discouraging police. He is expected to show up at London’s Westminster Magistrates’ Court later on Tuesday.
Last week another man, Lewis Hughes, 23, was accused of normal attack and will show up in court toward the month’s end.
