Labour's Jonathan Ashworth suffered yet another embarrassing mishap in a live TV interview this morning.  Speaking to Sky's Sophy Ridge he'd somewhat questionably decided to do the interview outside during some dreadful weather.  After his umbrella blew inside out, the lighting equipment fell on him.  Watch below.

Earlier this year Ashworth's young daughter gatecrashed a BBC interview and his laptop fell over during another interview.  For all the criticism of Matt Hancock, bear in mind that Ashworth is the alternative!

Incidentally, while Ashworth argues against mandatory vaccination, one of his party colleagues has refused to rule it out for Wales.  Health minister Vaughan Gething said he wouldn't rule anything out in an interview with ITV News in September.  Regardless of your view about vaccines, this is incredibly disturbing.
