PM IN DOUBLE SECURITY SCARE.

Byline: OONAGH BLACKMAN and ROD CHAYTOR

TONY Blair suffered a double security scare yesterday as he went on a meet-the-people tour.

In a live TV appearance he was ambushed by a tearful mum over a school crisis facing her autistic son.

And earlier, activists from the group Fathers4Justice claimed they got to "within two inches" of Tony Blair's hotel bedroom.

In the TV scare, Maria Hutchings got within a foot of the Premier.

Mrs Hutchings had been in the front row for Five's The Wright Stuff when she ran towards him.

She said: "I had to find a way to help my son."

John, 10, needs speech therapy and the family fear his special needs school in Essex, is to close.

Fathers4Justice boasted up to a dozen members gathered outside his bedroom at the Malmaison hotel in Birmingham.

A Downing Street spokeswoman said: "We never comment on the PM's security."
