Woman charged after milkshake thrown at Nigel Farage | UK news

A 25-year-old woman has been charged with assault by beating and criminal damage after a milkshake was thrown at Britain’s Reform leader Nigel Farage following a campaign event in Clacton on Tuesday.

Victoria Thomas Bowen, 25, will appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, July 2, according to Essex Police.

The force said the charges relate to an incident where a drink was thrown at a man in the Marine Parade East area of ​​Clacton on Tuesday at around 2.10pm.

Farage was sprayed with yellow liquid from a McDonald’s cup as he left the Moon and Starfish pub, on the seafront in the Essex town, and was about to board a campaign bus .

He had earlier addressed a crowd of several hundred people nearby, after announcing he would run for office in the constituency.

A 44-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of assaulting an emergency worker has been released and will face no further action, police said.

Farage has been a victim of ‘milkshaking’ in the past. In 2019 he was thrown a £5.25 Five Guys banana and salted caramel milkshake while campaigning in Newcastle.

The politician made light of Tuesday’s incident in a clip posted to social media in which he held up a McDonald’s milkshake in his hand and said: “My milkshake brings everyone to the rally “.
