The assailant characterized his violent and destructive behavior as a form of "protest" and saw Farage's speech as his "only chance", arguing that the Brexit leader's alleged racism is far worse than wasted milkshakes.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's final Brexit gambit was in tatters on Wednesday just hours after her offer of a vote on a second referendum and closer trading arrangements failed to win over either opposition lawmakers or many in her own party.

Earlier this week, Farage was covered in milkshake after a protester threw the drink at him in Newcastle.

Northumbria Police confirmed a 32-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of common assault and remains in custody.

Nigel Farage has been forced to seek refuge on his campaign bus after being stalked by people carrying milkshakes in Kent, according to reports.

Mr Farage, leader of the Brexit Party, had a milkshake thrown at him by a member of the public while campaigning in Newcastle ahead of this week's European Parliament elections.

Nigel Farage has reportedly been trapped in his Brexit Party campaign bus after a group holding milkshakes showed up at campaign event.

Nigel Farage claimed that the Electoral Commission had "not found a single misdeed by the Brexit Party" - but the watchdog did not support the claims.

Soon, Farage's name was a trending topic on Twitter, with many weighing in on the incident in both defense and condemnation of Crowther's actions.

Farage tweeted after the incident: "Sadly some Remainers have become radicalised, to the extent that normal campaigning is becoming impossible".

"We will not be selling milkshakes or ice cream tonight", a sign taped to the door of the fast food chain's central Edinburgh restaurant said.
