A London MP who voted to bomb Syria was today under police protection after a death threat on Twitter.
Officers were posted outside the constituency office of Neil Coyle, the Labour MP for Bermondsey & Old Southwark.
Mr Coyle was told 999 calls from his office or home would trigger an automatic response.
The abusive tweet with images of knives, said: ' u voted for air strikes in syria, if I see u round ends.'
The account was later deleted after Mr Coyle reported it to Twitter and alerted the police.
Mr Coyle later received an email apology from someone called Ishak claiming to be the author of the tweet.
