MP Anna Soubry advised not to stay alone overnight after receiving death threat

Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry has been advised not to stay alone overnight in her own home after receiving a death threat.

In her weekly newsletter, the MP revealed that a death threat had been sent to her home with the author stating that they were on her 'doorstep'.

The Police Commander responsible for Parliamentary security has said he is seriously concerned over the MP's safety as her partner is away over the weekend.

The former minister, who quit the Conservative Party to join The Independent Group said: ''I get abuse because of what I say and it's a very sorry state of affairs in our country when an MP is subjected to serious death threats because of their opinions - namely doing their job."
