  • Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage

A man has been charged with common assault after Brexit party leader Nigel Farage was left covered in milkshake in Newcastle city centre yesterday.

The so-called "milkshaking" of Farage follows a number of similar incidents against MEP candidates in the run up to the European elections.

Paul Crowther, 32, of Throckley, Newcastle, has been charged with common assault and criminal damage relating to Mr Farage's microphones.

He is due to appear at North Tyneside Magistrates' Court on 18 June. "A 32-year-old man was detained at the scene and arrested by police".

Mr Farage told Nick Ferrari: "There's something really appalling going on out there in our country".

The Brexit Party leader vented fury at his security and political opponents after he was splattered with a £5.25 Five Guys banana and salted caramel dairy drink on his European election tour.

Following the incident, Mr Farage was heard telling a member of his staff that he "could have spotted that a mile off".

Mr Farage also visited the region earlier this month in the lead up to the election.

He later told reporters that the milkshake was "yobbo flavoured" and he is understood to have made a statement to Northumbria Police.

Downing Street said politicians had to be able to "campaign without harassment, intimidation and abuse".

"Ever since 24 June 2016 we've had senior members of the British establishment - including two former prime ministers - literally refusing to accept the result, saying that those that voted Brexit didn't know what they were voting for - they're thick, they're stupid, they're lazy, they're racist, they're working class, they're fat, they're frightful".

The trend has become enough of a worry for police that they have begun asking McDonald's restaurants near to Brexit Party and UKIP campaign events to stop serving milkshakes and ice-cream in the preceding hours.
