Coronation Street star Sean Ward has been pictured in handcuffs – with the actor led away by police at an anti-vax gathering.

The 33-year-old was photographed between two officers at the rally in Canary Wharf, east London, yesterday (September 3).

Hundreds of protesters reportedly attempted to storm the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) HQ.

Press reports indicate the Metropolitan Police have said they do not comment on individual arrests. It is unknown why Sean was led away by officers.

Dressed in black trousers and a white T-shirt, Sean had his mouth open as he looked downwards.

He also shared Instagram videos yesterday showing him travelling through London.

Sean wrote on social media: “Kids don’t need an experimental jab prove us wrong.”

He later added: “The police have fully blocked the doors and won’t let anyone in, as you can imagine, but we’ve already got people in there.”

A few weeks ago he indicated on social media he had joined a demonstration at the studios where the BBC and ITV filmed.

What have police said?

Police said a number of officers attended a demonstration at Cabot Square in Canary Wharf, guarding the entrance to the building.

They confirmed: “A number of protesters have become violent towards police.

We’ve already got people in there.

“Four of our officers have been injured during clashes. This is unacceptable.”

ED has contacted Sean’s representative for further comment.
