British Actor Laurence Fox Fired By GB News & Arrested Within The Space Of A Few Hours

Laurence Fox, the British actor who has starred in Lewis and White Lines, has been fired from GB News and arrested on the same day.

GB News said on Wednesday that it had “ended its employment relationship” with Fox after he was suspended last week for a misogynistic rant about female journalist Ava Evans.

Fox’s GB News rant, in which he claimed no “self-respecting man” would “climb into bed” with Evans, has become the most complained about moment on British TV since 2021. He has since apologized to Evans for his remarks.

Laurence Fox Arrest

Fox’s firing came shortly after he was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit criminal damage to controversial low-emission zone cameras in London.

Hours earlier he streamed what appeared to be a police raid on his home. The Reclaim Party, the populist political party Fox launched in 2020, posted the footage on X (formerly Twitter) in which the actor claimed that police were seizing items from his home.

It followed Fox declaring his support for the “Blade Runners” group of Ultra Low Emission Zone (Ulez) vigilantes in an interview with former LBC radio host Maajid Nawaz on Rumble.

“I encourage them to tear down every single camera there is and I will be joining them,” the suspended GB News host said on Tuesday. “I am pretty close with several and I will be out there with my angle grinder.”

The Metropolitan Police said in a statement: “Officers arrested a 45-year-old man on suspicion of conspiring to commit criminal damage to Ulez cameras and encouraging or assisting offences to be committed.

“He was arrested in Stockwell and has been taken to a South London police station where he remains in custody.”
