Piers Corbyn has been filmed removing Covid-19 signage from a London Underground train.
Videos show Piers Corbyn removing stickers that instructed train users to social distance and wear masks, whilst commenting and not wearing a mask himself, and putting them into an orange carrier bag.
“They didn’t keep their distance at the G7, did they?” Said Mr Corbyn, referring to the meeting of the G7 leaders in Cornwall which was criticised for not adhering to coronavirus restrictions.
He added: “Boris lied to us so we’re taking these things down ourselves.”

The footage, posted to Twitter on Thursday evening, was taken on a Victoria Line train as it passed through Green Park station.
In the video Mr Corbyn, the brother of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, appears to be being assisted by another man.
The British Transport Police have confirmed they are aware of the footage.
They tweeted: "We are aware of a video showing two men removing public health stickers from a Victoria Line Underground train.
"Officers are currently making enquiries into the incident."
