Anti-vaxx protesters storm Covid test site and REMOVE vital equipment in shocking scenes
ANTI-VAX protesters have stormed a Covid test and trace site and REMOVED vital equipment.
Shocking footage shows hundreds of mask-less demonstrators descending on the tented site in Milton Keynes.
While waving signs and shouting chants such as “Boris lied” one man is seen picking up orange cones and firing them at the centre’s entrance.
Stressed security workers are seen walking around in high vis vest while speaking into walkie talkies while members of the crowd videoed and heckled them.
A protester over a megaphone is heard telling the crowd to “keep it peaceful” but after a few minutes some members of the group entered inside the testing centre.
One woman posed for pictures inside the site holding a sign reading “Reclaim the NHS, end jabs tyranny now”.
She then picks up boxes of test tubes, swabs and other testing equipment before walking out with a smile on her face.
Covid booster jabs protect against Omicron and offer the best chance to get through the pandemic, health officials have repeatedly said.

The Sun's Jabs Army campaign is helping get the vital extra vaccines in Brits' arms to ward off the need for any new restrictions.
Today's protest comes as Brits are struggling to get hold of coronavirus tests in the run up to New Year's Eve celebrations.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid blamed the shortage on global supply issues, as Omicron forced people to ramp up testing.
People have today flocked to the Government portal to access tests, some have been met with disappointment.
The Health Secretary revealed a global shortage of lateral flow and PCR tests was impacting the UK.
He set out the situation in a phone call with Tory MP Sir Roger Gale, who added: "A British company that is making them has ramped up its production line fourfold and we are buying the lot, plus anything we can get from anywhere else around the world, but we are competing in a global market."
As of this morning, people trying to order lateral flow kits for home delivery have been told there is none available.
There are also currently no PCR tests available for home delivery and there are also none for essential workers.
As well as this there is currently no availability for drive-in/walk through sites for PCRs in the whole of England.
There are 'very few' available in Scotland, none in Northern Ireland – but there is full availability in Wales.
The Sun has contacted Thames Valley Police and the UKHSA for comment.
