A second man has been charged with assault after health boss Professor Chris Whitty was allegedly accosted in a London park.
Jonathan Chew, 24, has been charged with common assault and obstructing the police.
He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court later this month.
Prof Whitty appeared in a video to be harassed by two men in St James’s Park.
They claimed they only wanted a “selfie” with England’s chief medical officer.
Prof Whitty appeared concerned and distressed by the approach and tried to breakaway.
Last week Lewis Hughes, 23, was charged with common assault following the incident and will appear at the same court on 30 July.
A statement from the Metropolitan Police said:
“At approximately 19:20hrs on Sunday, 27 June officers in St James’s Park became aware of a man being accosted by a group of men.
“They spoke to the victim and checked his welfare.
“He had not suffered any injuries.
“Officers subsequently reviewed video footage which emerged after the incident and the matter was referred to the Public Order Crime Team.
