ANGRY protestors spat at and aggressively abused a Worcestershire MP - who has called the experience "absolutely despicable".

Nigel Huddleston has revealed the appalling scenes at the hands of vent-up campaigners outside the Conservative Party conference in Manchester.

The 44-year-old, who was elected for the first time in May, has revealed how:

- Outside the conference centre aggressive protestors tried to pick off MPs and get into verbal and even physical confrontations with them

- He had to calm down one female 70-year-old parish councillor who was so scared she was "shaking with fear"

- He witnessed charity workers, journalists and colleagues routinely abused and was spat at himself as he tried to avoid eye contact with protestors

- He said entering and leaving the Manchester Central conference centre was a daily ordeal because of the intimidation outside

The conference, which ended yesterday, was overshadowed by up to 80,000 protestors embarking on Manchester for an anti-austerity march which turned nasty.

Police officers have since called it their biggest security challenge for a decade, making 19 arrests during the largest ever demonstration the region had seen.

Mr Huddleston, who represents Mid-Worcestershire, left Manchester almost immediately after David Cameron's closing speech.

He said: "What I saw up there was absolutely despicable, there was physical abuse going on, verbal abuse going on, there were people spitting at me, to some degree we all experienced it.

"I saw one 70-year-old lady, a parish councillor walk inside and get spat at and abused, and she was literally shaking with fear as she tried to get in and that really hit me.

"I know they threw stuff at (George) Osborne too, it didn't do Manchester a whole lot of good PR.

"I just found it very objectionable, whatever cause they were trying to make was just lost by their behaviour.

"As you're queuing up it takes 30 to 45 minutes to get in and the irony was, there were people who'd come up to you making points in a very civil manner, but the behaviour of the others was a complete contrast.

"It was very uncomfortable outside the conference centre every time I tried to get in and out."

He said he had to become "pretty good" at ignoring and moving quickly past the angry protestors who approached Tories, but was spat at whilst leaving yesterday and saw more jostling and pushing.

He has also accused Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn of stoking the fire, saying he had "set the tone" for aggressive behaviour by depicting them as "evil, nasty Tories".

"I just think 'you know what, it's his kind of politics that makes it this way," he said.

Despite Mr Huddleston's remarks Mr Corbyn did use Twitter to urge protestors to "focus on policy and take no part in personal attacks" this week.

Two of the rallies included one by the TUC to highlight the Trade Union Bill and another to 'Save the NHS'.

Len McCluskey, Unite’s general secretary, said the protest was "sending a very clear message to this Tory government" that it faces a fightback.
