WATCH: Moment pro-Brexit Protestors try to ARREST Sadiq Khan while quoting the Magna Carta after storming conference hall

This is the dramatic moment a group of far-right Trump supporters tried to arrest Sadiq Khan while quoting the Magna Carta.

The men stormed the Fabian Society conference in London moments after the mayor took to the stage and accused him of ‘subverting the English constitution’.

Mr Khan’s speech had to be suspended for several minutes as the demonstrators from a group called the White Pendragons were escorted out by police.

The chaotic protest appeared to have been sparked by Mr Khan’s comments about the US President’s decision to cancel his UK visit.

Mr Trump claimed he pulled out of opening the new American embassy in London because he disagreed with the decision to sell off the old building for ‘peanuts’.

But Mr Khan said it was clear that Mr Trump had ‘got the message that many Londoners’ did not want him here.

As the London Mayor started to speak at today’s event, the protesters stood up and shouted that they were making a ‘citizen’s arrest’.

The men – who got into the event by buying tickets – also vowed to take the panel’s chair Kate Green MP into custody as well as Sir Keir Starmer and general secretary Andrew Harrop.

They then told guards that they were attempting to arrest the politicians under ‘common law jurisdiction’ and the Magna Carta – the 13th-century document that is often regarded as the foundation of the modern legal system.
