Tory MP's office vandalised by protesters

Secretary of State for Health Lansley, 54, who is also MP for South Cambridgeshire, has come under fire in recent weeks over his proposed cuts to the NHS.

On Thursday night protesters visited his constituency office in Hardwick, Cambridge, and covered the front of the building with red and black paint.

The vandals wrote ”Hands of our NHS Tory scum” and smashed a window.

Police have been informed of the attack and are currently trying to track down those responsible for the criminal damage.

A spokeswoman for Lansley said: ”When we came in to work this morning we found the front of the building had been covered with black and red paint.

”We think the attack must have happened overnight and we don’t have any idea who is responsible. At this stage we don’t know the cost of the damage.

”The police have been informed and we cannot comment further while their investigation is being carried out.”

The spokeswoman added that Lansley will not be commenting on the incident as he is attending a family funeral today.
