BORIS JOHNSON failed to tell even his closest colleagues about the moment he rescued a woman from a gang of hoodies armed with a metal bar. When film-maker Franny Armstrong described publicly how she screamed for help during the terrify- ing late-night attack and then the Mayor came to her aid, it was the first his staff knew of it. A source close to Mr Johnson said today: A lady called out for help so thats what he did.

COUNCIL powers to snoop on the public will be cut under government plans today, in a bid to stem fears of a Big Brother state. Under new codes of practice, junior council officials will lose their power to authorise surveillance operations using techniques such as vehicle tracking and covert filming. Screamed for help: Franny Armstrong was threatened with iron bar didnt say a thing about it. He downplayed the incident so much that everyone at City Hall only heard about it on the news. Even today Mr Johnson refused to talk about the incident in Camden, apart from confirming that Ms Armstrongs description of events was accurate. The 37-year-old said she was confronted in the street by three girls aged about 12. She said: They pushed me against a parked car really hard and bruised my back. One of the girls drew an iron bar and was about to hit me. It was terrifying. Ms Armstrong, a climate change activist who directed the film Age Of Stupid, said she called out for help to a passing cyclist. As the cyclist approached I saw it was Boris Johnson and couldnt believe my eyes. I turned to the girls and said, Thats the Mayor of London. That scared them and they dropped the bar and ran away. The Mayor asked if I was okay before grabbing the pole and disappearing after them for at least 10 minutes. After losing the gang at a junction Mr Johnson returned to walk Ms Armstrong home. She called him her knight on a shining bicycle.
