A hard-left protester who screamed ‘Nazi scum’ at a Donald Trump supporter who was covered in milkshake at a demonstration yesterday is a company boss selling private services to the NHS, MailOnline can reveal.

The 35-year-old yesterday apologised for her behaviour when she shouted at the grandfather as he was coated in the milky drink during protests at Parliament Square.
She now faces a battle to save her job at the hospital.

A UCLH source said today bosses were weighing up whether to end her contract, though no decision has yet been taken.
The businesswoman’s social media profiles, which have now been deleted, contained a string of hashtags including #LGBTQIA and #IntersectionalFeminist.
A spokeswoman for the hospital said: ‘Siobhan Prigent is not a UCLH employee. She works for a third party contracted to carry out administrative work at UCLH. Her work does not involve patient contact.’

‘I’ve let myself down & I do understand that fully. There are two sides to every story, but my actions were my own, & that’s on me. Please leave my family & friends out of it.’
