Michael Gove was mobbed by anti-Israel protesters attending a demonstration on Saturday.
Footage on social media showed them hurling abuse at the levelling up secretary as he was returning from his Surrey Heath constituency.
The footage showed people surrounding him and shouting "shame on you" at London's Victoria Station.
The protesters crowding him were heard chanting "shame on you" as police officers shouted at them to "get back".
In another clip, Gove was seen walking down a London street as protesters followed him chanting the same slogan.
There was just a mad pile in at London’s Victoria station as Michael Gove appeared, for some bizarre reason, in the middle of a sit in protest for Palestine. He was greeted with screams of “shame on you!”. pic.twitter.com/VYGgph6uuN— Liz Cookman (@liz_cookman) November 11, 2023
The Government minister had to be taken away in a police van.
Politicians took to social media to express solidarity with the Conservative cabinet minister.
Dame Arlene Foster, former first minister of Northern Ireland, said on X/Twitter: “This is so disgraceful. Sending solidarity to @michaelgove and all those who seek to go about their private business on a Saturday afternoon but who are intimidated by thugs.”
London Mayor Sadiq Khan described attempts to intimidate politicians as “unacceptable”.
SNP Westminster leader Stephen Flynn said: “It’s not ‘bizarre’ for Michael Gove to use a major tube/train station. He should be able to travel in peace like everyone else.
“Those acting in this fashion damage their cause and, along with those displaying abhorrent antisemitism amongst the rally today, must be condemned.”
Posting on X/Twitter, Gove said: "I'm very grateful for so many kind messages in the last 24 hours.
"I'd like to thank the police for their exemplary work getting me home safely yesterday."
Hundreds of thousands of people took part in a anti-Israel march in central London - the biggest since the Israel-Hamas war began on October 7.
