Eugene Doherty, president of organisers Lancaster & Morecambe TUC, said: “The Tories have used the pandemic to feather their own nests while they have thrown thousands on benefits, benefits which they have cut.

“They have repaid key workers with claps and ice-creams while they award themselves and all MPs a £2,000 a year pay increase.

“They aim to curb our right to protest, yet they gather illegally to party. We are right to say Johnson must go.”
