Baker was researching Combat Academy, a self-defence outfit that runs classes in his constituency, when he was challenged to take on trainer Reece Coker. Coker promptly tackled him to the ground, shoved a hand in his face, and left the MP writhing on the floor.

I did meet several people who've turned their lives around, big lads who'd been bullied or not done well at school and lacked self-esteem."
And there's the hand in the MP's face.
