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."
Thank goodness for our superb police. Just walked home safely from HoC with their protection - why do the so called ‘People’s Vote’ protesters think it’s ok to abuse, intimidate and scream in the face of someone they don’t agree with? So frightening, and so grateful to the police— Andrea Leadsom MP (@andrealeadsom) October 19, 2019
