Jacob Rees-Mogg was heckled by anti-Brexit protesters shouting 'shame on you' and had to be escorted home with his son. Diane Abbott was also escorted by police after receiving abuse from Brexit supporters.

The Leader of the House of Commons was escorted by police officers through the 'Let Us Be Heard' rally in Parliament Square.

He was with his son Peter Theodore Alphege.

They were walking home after it was announced that the Letwin amendment had been passed.

Supporters of another referendum shouted 'shamed on you' as the father and son walked.

The shadow Home Secretary, Diane Abbott, was also escorted by police after receiving abuse from pro-Brexit supporters.

Andrea Leadsom also received police protection when leaving parliament.

She wrote that she was "so grateful to the police."
