Veteran Conservative MP John Hayes called the protest “insulting and staggering”.

他加了: “These protesters have targeted a statue of our great war leader Sir Winston Churchill.”

“That is deeply offensive as we gather in remembrance to the fallen this weekend.”

Footage shared online showed demonstrators holding Albanian national flags with the double-headed eagle as the group chanted songs in their native language.

The group also occupied roads in Westminster whilst chanting “Shame on you”.

One protestor held a placard that said: “I am Albanian, I am not a criminal, I work very hard & pay more tax than the Prime Minister’s wife.”

It comes as Home Secretary 苏拉·布雷弗曼 came under fire after labelling the spike in Albanian migrants arriving in small boats as an “invasion”.

Albanians have accounted for around 12,000 of the over 40,000 migrants who have come to the UK this year.
