Johnny Mercer’s wife calls police on protest by Gulf War veterans

Johnny Mercer’s wife appeared to call the police on Gulf War veterans who carried out a peaceful protest against the veterans’ minister a day before the general election.

Several members of Justice4Veterans, who claim to suffer from Gulf War Syndrome, arrived in Plymouth Moor View with banners on Wednesday (3 July), accusing Mr Mercer of betrayal.

The banners also called for local residents to vote him out of office.

In a video, shared by Justice4Veterans, Mr Mercer’s wife Felicity can be seen on the phone.

She says: “I’m standing on Derriford Roundabout, and I’ve got some people with banners saying ‘Johnny Judas Mercer’and ‘Johnny Mercer out’. I’d like some police sent down please.”

The Independent has contacted Devon and Cornwall Police for further information.
