► Mark Field has been suspended after grabbing a female Greenpeace activist at a black tie dinner in the City.
He confronted Janet Barker, pushing her against a column and then marching her away, after protestors interrupted a speech by the Chancellor to call for action on climate change.
The Prime Minister said the footage was 'very concerning' and it's now been referred to police. Mr Field says he reacted 'instinctively' because he was worried she may have been armed.
