Nigel Farage has been hit by a milkshake after being attacked by a Remainer in the centre of Newcastle.
The Brexit Party leader was overheard muttering: "How did that happen?" and telling his bodyguards it had been a "failure".

The milkshake in question was no ordinary cheap shake — it was a £5.25 variety banana and salted caramel variety from burger chain Five Guys.

On Sunday, 19 May, Burger King was accused of "endorsing violence" after reminding customers in Scotland that it sells milkshakes.
McDonald's was also ordered to stop selling the drinks near a rally Farage held in Edinburgh on Friday, 17 May.
Sadly some remainers have become radicalised, to the extent that normal campaigning is becoming impossible.— Nigel Farage (@Nigel_Farage) 20 May 2019
For a civilised democracy to work you need the losers consent, politicians not accepting the referendum result have led us to this.
It followed former EDL leader Tommy Robinson being hit by two milkshakes earlier this month and Ukip candidate Carl Benjamin being doused in milkshake for the fourth time on Sunday while out and about in Salisbury.
