Crowds booed and jeered as Theresa May was accused of hiding from voters as she left a campaign stump at a community centre in Bristol.

The Prime Minister was shouted at on Tuesday afternoon (2 May) as she was driven away from the Hungerford Community Centre while police held back the crowds.

According to local resident Geraint Evans, who shot the video, residents were not aware of the event, and "only one person at the community centre knew of the visit."

Evans continued to say that "the event itself was by invitation only and you needed ID and an invite to get in. No members, local residents or regulars at the Community Centre (or social club on the top floor of the building) were allowed to attend."

Conservative Party Councillor Tony Carey branded the protesters 'idiots.'

In response to an accusation that the event was filled with a "handful of toffs," and that the Prime Minister had avoided local residents, Carey wrote that there were "there were plenty of working class people there in their paint-splattered overalls," as well as "working class but retired folk."

The post under which Carey commented has since been removed.

It came after a furore over May's earlier visit to the marginal seat of St Ives in Cornwall, where the county's biggest news website was banned from filming the prime minister's visit to a factory.

Reporters from Cornwall Live complained that they were shut in a room to enforce the video ban while the prime minister was visiting a diving equipment factory in Helston.
