Boris Johnson's car assailed by protestor then hit by vehicle
Boris Johnson's Jaguar car was involved in a crash outside the Houses of Parliament in Westminster this afternoon following Prime Minister's Questions. A protester from a group of Kurdish demonstrators is said to have run towards the 55-year-old politician's car, before a security vehicle went into the rear of it. Photographs showed a huge dent in the rear of the Jaguar XJ Portfolio V8 LWB Auto, which costs upwards of £54,000 new, as it was driven back to 10 Downing Street.

A nearby CCTV camera captured the protester running into the road, stopping in front of a police motorbike in front of the Prime minister's vehicle and then being dragged away.

The lead car was forced to stop, with an escorting Range Rover running into the back of it in what appeared to be a minor collision. The vehicles then drove off, with a dent visible in the back of Mr Johnson's £54,000 car.
