Nigel Farage breaks silence after ‚wet cement‘ lobbed at Reform leader | Politics | News

Nigel Farage has insisted he will „not be bullied“ after he found himself at the centre of another attack on the campaign trail. The new Reform UK leader was standing on an open-top bus in Barnsley town centre, South Yorkshire, today (June 11).

But as he travelled through the town, he was pelted with what is believed to be wet cement and a coffee cup, with pictures showing him bracing for impact by raising his arm in front of his face. The wet cement is not though to have hit the politician.

It is the second time in a fortnight Mr Farage has been doused in a substance, the first time being in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, the town in which he is vying for a seat. He had a banana milkshake chucked in his face.

In response to today’s incident, he said: “My huge thanks to South Yorkshire Police today. I will not be bullied or cowed by a violent left-wing mob who hate our country.”

The politician shared a video which showed a man in a red jacket throwing objects from a building site before being detained by police.
