Police were called to a Policy Exchange seminar today, after protesters disrupted a speech by the employment minister.

The debate on universal credit saw at least four people ejected after they protested against the treatment of welfare claimants by the government.

According to reports from the event, organisers repeatedly tried to get protestors to air their grievances during a later Q&A session, but they persisted in interrupting the speech by employment minister Mark Hoban.
