Residents of a north London borough have blocked Jo Swinson's campaign bus in protest at cuts made during the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition.
A group of around 25 Haringey locals stood in front of the vehicle and held a one minute's silence for the "victims of austerity".
Sharing the moment on Twitter, Haringey resident Ella Road wrote: "Today locals in Hornsey and Wood Green blocked Jo Swinson's Lib Dem campaign bus to hold one minute's silence for the victims of austerity.
"The Lib Dem/Tory cuts devastated services in Haringay [sic], including the very youth centre she was visiting. She's got some nerve coming here."
A group gathered to show their "distaste" at Ms Swinson's visit
Ms Swinson was heading to the local Total Boxer gym on the election campaign trail, after pledging to invest £500 million in youth services in a bid to tackle knife crime
But Ms Road told talkRADIO she thought the choice of venue was "disrespectful".
"There's an element of disrespect in using a local youth centre for a PR stunt," she said. "There's lots of youth centres being closed down."
The amount of government grant funding to Haringey has reduced by £122 million since 2010, with the council workforce reducing by 45 per cent.
Ms Road continued: "I was chatting to a guy today who had moved out of the area a few years ago and has just come back again.
"He said he could really see the changes. I've been living here the whole time so I haven't really noticed it because things change incrementally. But he was saying he has really noticed the changes in the area since funding has been going down."
