Nigel Farage ‘stuck on Brexit bus due to people armed with milkshakes’

Nigel Farage is reported to have refused to get off his Brexit Party campaign bus due to people nearby wearing balaclavas thought to have been  armed with milkshakes.

Police are reported to have been called to the scene in Rochester.

Earlier this week the Brexit Party leader was doused in the milk-based drink while campaigning in Newcastle.

Today Mr Farage has been campaigning in Kent on a bus driven by Michael Botton, reports Kent Live.

Mr Botton told Kent Live: "There are a couple of guys standing over there with milkshakes, they were going to throw them over him.

“But the police are there, we’ve spotted them and now Nigel isn’t getting off the bus.”

Three young men dressed in black with their hoods up and covering their faces with balaclavas were spotted at the back of the crowd.

Kent Live reporter at the scene Will Rider said: "He was stuck on the bus for ages and wouldn't come off.

"Eventually he did come off but he only stepped about a metre away and chatted to some supporters.

"He got back on the bus very quickly.

"In all the other places he stopped off and walked down the high street.

"There was a Brexit stall on this high street but he didn't visit it.

"He's gone and everyone has left now."

Mr Farage, whose Brexit Party have seen huge success in polling ahead of the voting tomorrow, said: "…militant Remainers who do not hide their contempt for the demos – the people – and imagine that they can stop the march of a mass movement with a milkshake. Dream on."

Mr Farage has been on the streets earlier today to meet voters ahead of the European elections taking place tomorrow.

He is said to have largely received a positive reception in Dartford and Gravesend.
