Boris Johnson's tumultuous week in politics was almost perfectly encapsulated on Thursday evening when a police officer almost collapsed during one of his speeches.
The moment occurred during a televised address the prime minister was giving in West Yorkshire, where he was unusually flanked by a wall of police, which provided a striking and almost worrying image.
The female police cadet had been standing with her colleagues listening to Johnson's rambling speech for almost 20 minutes before appearing to take a turn, hold her head and sit down.
This startled Johnson, who initially seemed confused as to what was going on before apologising and confirming that he was about to finish before speaking for several more moments about Jeremy Corbyn and general election.
I'm so sorry, OK that is a signal for me actively to wind up.
Johnson's lackadaisical reaction to what had just happened, where he didn't even attempt to console the officer was heavily criticised, especially by the West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns-Williamson.
