    The European elections are taking place across the EU on 23 May and the Brexit Party is expected to do extremely well. Their leader Nigel Farage is on a tour of the UK.

    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. 

    ​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.
