The man who assaulted Nigel Farage whilst he was campaigning for the European elections has entered a guilty plea but claimed the assault was 'a right of protest against people like him'.

On 20th May, the 32 year old was arrested after throwing a milkshake at the Brexit Party leader.

Paul Crowther of Throckley, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, who carried out the assault in Newcastle in full view of the media, claims: 'The bile and the racism he spouts out in this country is far more damaging than a bit of milkshake to his front.'

Crowther was charged by Northumbria Police with common assault and criminal damage to a microphone that was damaged during the attack.

Paul Crowther admitted to both charges of Common Assault and Criminal Damage whilst in court today.
