According to Buzzfeed News, he was "wearing a suit with a Union Flag handkerchief and carrying a copy of the Sunday Telegraph with Margaret Thatcher’s face on the cover".

Speaking to Buzzfeed, Lock said of the incident: "you wouldn't catch Tories doing that to Corbyn".

Lock had previously stood as a Conservative candidate for Manchester City Council. Thousands of Conservatives were in Manchester for the party's annual conference.
