Five arrested after Iain Duncan Smith assaulted with traffic cone outside Tory conference
The Independent says five people have been arrested after former Tory leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith was allegedly assaulted by being hit on the head with a traffic cone in Manchester.
Sir Iain said he was struck by the object after he was pursued by a group calling him “Tory scum” while on his way to a Brexit talk on the fringe of the Conservative Party conference.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said three men and two women were arrested after reports of an assault at around 4pm on Portland Street.
