Brexit leader Nigel Farage was attacked over the weekend by a man who threw a milkshake at him after an event he held in Newcastle.

Farage cut short his walkabout to the northern English city after the incident and was led away by his security.

In the video, a dripping Farage can be heard grumbling to his security team that he could've seen the attack coming "a mile away".

Paul Crowther, 32, from Throckley, Newcastle, said it was a £5.25 Five Guys banana and salted caramel milkshake.

The Brexit Party leader gave a statement to Northumbria police and is thought to be planning to press charges.

Los Blancos had a disastrous 2018-19 campaign finishing in third position , 19 points behind winners Barcelona and eight below city neighbours Atletico Madrid.

According to PA reporter Tom Wilkinson Crowther could be heard talking about his milkshake while standing in handcuffs outside a bookstore, saying: "I was quite looking forward to it, but I think it went on a better objective". Scott Macdonald, an online coordinator for the Scottish Socialist Party, posted a sign he said was from the McDonald's window that stated, "We will not be selling milkshakes or ice cream tonight". He continued, "It's a right of protest against people like him".

"The bile and the racism he spouts out in this country is far more damaging than a bit of milkshake to his front", added Crowther, who is a customer service adviser for Sky, the owner of Sky News, according to his Facebook page.

Following the incident, Farage tweeted: "Sadly some remainers have become radicalised, to the extent that normal campaigning is becoming impossible". Other right-wing candidates including far-right activist Tommy Robinson have also been pelted with milkshakes during the election campaign. - #Justsaying- The entire mess prompted McDonald's to temporarily halt milkshake sales near the site of a campaign event Farage held last week.

On Saturday, Burger King came under fire after tweeting: "Dear people of Scotland, we're selling milkshakes all weekend". He was soon detained and taken from the scene in handcuffs, and has been arrested on suspicion of assault, per TIME.
