A Covid-denier filmed herself ranting about swabs being taken on screaming babies outside what she believed to be a coronavirus testing centre, but was actually a beer tent in a pub garden. Watch what happened here:
She confronted a man stood outside the marquee in the car park of the Queen of Hearts in Runcorn, Cheshire.
The woman posted the clip on a Twitter account called 'Thepeoplesresistance', talking about testing and swabs being dangerous.
She also tells the man he 'should be ashamed of himself', calling the Covid pandemic a 'scamdemic'.
She claimed the screams of children she could hear from the tent were 'unbearable'.
The post read: "Guys urgently need as many people as possible to get to runcorn at 3.30 today testing babies an [sic] kids in the carpark!!!
"The screams wete [sic] unbearable. We are going back to tackle them but need numbers as me against 14 i was outnumberef!! [sic] Please please get people together!!!"
The tent was actually there for the Euros, and was put up so customers could watch the football, with wooden tables and chairs decorated with England flags.
A Queen of Hearts spokesperson confirmed to the Liverpool Echo that the tent was there 'for football and family gatherings', adding that NHS mobile testing taking place in the area was 'nothing to do with us'.
Halton Council said the video was spreading false information.
A council spokesperson told the same publication: "The council has reported this content to the appropriate authorities and will not hesitate to take similar action to remove other harmful and misleading content.
"Unfortunately during this pandemic we have seen an increase in misinformation, conspiracy theories and criminals looking to exploit and feed off of people's fears and anxieties during what have been very challenging times.
"The public has a right to reliable information so we would encourage everyone to use trusted, reputable sources like the NHS, Gov.UK, Council website and local or national media and to be aware of the techniques being used by some to spread misinformation."
A Cheshire Police spokesman said: "At 12.36pm on Wednesday, June 23, police were called to reports of a possible protest on Jack Search Way, Runcorn.
"Officers attended the scene and on arrival everything was in order and there were no protesters present."
