MP Left With Black Eye After Motorcyclist Throws Brick At Him

The MP for Birmingham Selly Oak was then allegedly hit with a brick thrown by one of the them.

He told BBC: "We were just assembling at Greenford Road... to go and do a spot of door knocking, when a couple of characters came down, riding really recklessly, dangerously, doing wheelies in the middle of the road.

"I mean we've had umpteen complaints about this kind of dangerous behaviour and so I shouted at them to pack it in or I'd call the police."

He also took to Twitter to share a photo of his injury and two pictures of the alleged attackers.

He continued: "These are really quite nasty, violent thugs.

"It is a big issue in south Birmingham, they are terrorising neighbourhoods, but I don't think there is a direct connection in that they knew who I was.

"I think that's just the way they treat anybody who dares to challenge their behaviour."

Other MPs, including Labour's Angela Rayner, have tweeted to express their shock at the attack.


McCabe reported the matter to West Midlands Police are investigating the incident.
