Tarjanyi accosted the former Health Secretary who left the government after his affair with aide Gina Coladangelo yelling: "Why did you kill so many people with Midazolam?"

Five days later, Tarjanyi shouted in Westminster tube station: "Why did you murder millions of people?"

Mr Hancock claimed that when they got off at Bond Street, the conspiracy theorist told him: "I'll keep coming for you."

Tarjanyi claimed to the court that he is an independent journalist and that "depriving someone of a voice in the mainstream media, I think that's calculated, I think that's a calculated thing to say and do.

"It protects me and it protects the person I'm speaking to.

"I could only assume that he had something to hide, that's why I questioned him."
