LONDON — Theresa May was interrupted during her conference speech by a protestor who handed her a P45 who said: “Boris asked me to give this to you.”

The prime minister’s speech was stopped by a man who gave her the piece of paper, which she then dropped to the floor. The protestor was removed.

May responded by saying the man she wanted to give a P45 to was Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
