Veterans and Britons today rallied around a poppy seller who said he was punched and kicked by a mob at a pro-Palestine rally as he raised money for charity.

Motorcycle enthusiast Jim Henderson, 78, who says he served with the Army in Northern Ireland, was set upon while manning a Poppyscotland stall at Edinburgh’s Waverley Station.

There has been uproar over the incident, with people sending messages of support for Mr Henderson, who told the Mail he served in the Royal Corps of Signals, 32 Signal Regiment during the Troubles.
