A group opposed to the coronavirus vaccination programme turned up at Jeremy Vine’s house in Chiswick this Sunday (10 October) to serve him an ‘anti-vaxx’ writ.
The Eggheads presenter was not at home and his wife answered the door to accept the document but closed the door on the group when she saw they were filming.
At the same time a group with yellow placards assembled at the end of the road at the junction with Chiswick High Road.
Mr Vine said on Twitter that his understanding was that the group was angry about the BBC’s reporting of the pandemic. He has had coronavirus and spoken on television about receiving the vaccine.
He said, “They were polite, for which I’m grateful, but coming to my home on a Sunday?
“And I’m a little unnerved by the heavy breathing too.”
He added that if the writ had not been accepted by his wife the group at the end of the road had said they would have ‘taken the whole street’.
I'm not at home at the moment, so these guys just served an “anti-vaxx writ” on my wife instead. They are angry at the BBC’s #CovidVaccine reporting.

A video was posted on Twitter in which a spokesman for the group on Chiswick High Road called ‘Mick’ said, “We know their home address, we’ve got everybody’s address. We’ve got every MP’s address, we’ve got every councillor’s address. We’ve got every judge’s address and we’ve got everyone who works for the mainstream media’s address. There’s people in the resistance working in all walks of life. We can get every piece of information that we need.”
An anti-vaxx group had previously held a demonstration outside Television Centre in White City despite the BBC having vacated the building some years before.
