A Young Tory Has Been Egged At The Conservative Party Conference
Colm Lock was holding a newspaper with a picture of Margaret Thatcher on the cover.
A young Conservative activist has been egged at the Tory party conference in Manchester by protesters on an anti-austerity march.
The Tory member, a young activist called Colm Lock, was hit while watching anti-Conservative protesters march through central Manchester on Sunday afternoon.
Lock, who has stood as a Conservative candidate for Manchester city council, was wearing a suit with a union flag handkerchief and carrying a copy of the Sunday Telegraph with Margaret Thatcher's face on the cover while watching the union-organised protest.
When contacted by BuzzFeed News to ask how he felt about the incident, Colm said: "[The] only thing I would say is that you wouldn't catch Tories doing that to Corbyn."
Thousands of Conservatives have descended on the city for their party's annual gathering.
Unfortunately, this didn't help Lock – this video shows him being hit by the egg.
It is unclear who threw the produce, although anarchist flags are visible in the picture.
