Boris Johnson grabs phone as reporter shows him photo of boy lying on hospital floor

Boris Johnson has been heavily criticised after he was filmed grabbing a journalist’s phone and putting it in his pocket as he was shown a picture of a child lying on a Leeds hospital floor.

The prime minister was being interviewed by ITV’s political correspondent Joe Pike, who tried to show him a widely publicised photo of four-year-old Jack Williment-Barr.
