Defence minister Anna Soubry has proved she is not just prepared for political battles after breaking up a brawl in a cafe.
The MP, who has previously described herself as a "tough old bird", stopped a drunk man as he allegedly fought with two members of staff at a Pret a Manger in Westminster, central London.
The veterans minister reportedly stood between the group before blocking the man from returning to the cafe.
She told The Sun: "I shouted at the drunk guy, 'stop it, stop it now'. They often listen to women because they don't expect it.
"It was only afterwards that I thought perhaps that wasn't the brightest thing to do."A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said a man was arrested on suspicion of assault following the incident in Horseferry Road at around 7am yesterday.
