Anti-vaxxers led by Piers Corbyn stormed a university lecture by Professor Neil Ferguson to demand no more lockdowns, with one activist branding the scientist a ‘f****** murderer’.
The government advisor, dubbed “Professor Lockdown” at the heart the pandemic because he insisted on strict restrictions, was giving a talk at King’s College London this week.
However, shocking footage has emerged showing him being heckled by an audience member during the address.
WARNING! CLIP CONTAINS SWEARING

Resistance GB posted the video clip. It appears that he says: “I think the real legacy of this pandemic, long-term, is going to be a greater inequity that has generated.
“Basically, the young sacrificed a lot to save the elderly and that’s exacerbated by generational inequity.”
Prof Ferguson is interrupted at that point by a woman, who unlike many in the lecture theatre audience, is not wearing a mask.
She shouts: “And for?” I don’t know how anyone can sit through this nonsense, you’re a f*****g murderer. You’re a f*****g murderer… you’re a f*****g disgrace.’
It occurs as daily coronavirus infections have fallen again. Another of the country’s top Covid researchers predicted that Britain was now over the “last great peak” of the pandemic.
According to the Department of Health there were 37,269 more infections in the past 24 hours. This is a drop of 6.5 percent compared to last Thursday’s figures.
This is the 11th consecutive week of cases falling week-on-week. Separate data shows that infection rates are decreasing in nine out of 10 local authorities.
But hospitalisations and deaths — which lag a few weeks behind cases due to the time it takes for someone to become seriously unwell after catching the virus — are both on the rise.
Some 214 deaths were registered today — up 30 per cent on last week. And the latest hospital data shows there were 1,005 admissions on Sunday.
Separate data from the UK’s largest symptom-tracking study has now started to report a fall in cases for the first time in weeks — bringing the findings in line with the national picture.
The survey’s epidemiologist, Professor Tim Spector, stated that the country has probably reached the “last great peak” of Covid for the year. However, he encouraged mask-wearing and social distancing in order to stay safe.
Resistance GB are a group of YouTubers who claim to show the ‘news which the mainstream won’t show you’.
The campaign was launched in October 2020 to “resist the erosion of British culture”
They claim their focus is on ‘Natural Rights and Civil Liberties, Police Abuses, and Government Criminality in London, and wider Great Britain’.
The logo of the group features a map of British isles. It is similar to GB News’s logo. They claim to feature news that the mainstream media won’t show you.
Their one notable ‘exclusive was an interview with Piers Corbyn, conspiracy theorist, and anti-lockdown protester – the brother to former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – as he announced he was running in London for Mayor.
All major national news outlets covered the fact that Mr Corbyn was a candidate.
Many of the videos they have posted on their social media sites are from protests across the UK. These events have often been prominently featured on major news websites and news channels.
64,000 subscribers subscribe to the channel. They are loudly ‘anti mainstream media’ and have criticized traditional news outlets for their coverage on lockdowns.
