Barnsley: Man arrested after throwing objects at Nigel Farage

Farage said he believed the items were wet cement from the work site and then a cup of coffee.

He was on board Reform’s combat bus when the incident occurred, and police said the man who threw the items was arrested.

Farage also said police warned him not to get off the bus.

In a post on Twitter/X he wrote: “I have a huge thank you to South Yorkshire Police today. I will not be intimidated or intimidated by a violent leftist mob that hates our country.”

The National has contacted South Yorkshire Police for further comment.

The ruling came after Farage canceled an interview with party leaders that was due to be broadcast on the BBC on Tuesday evening.

Nick Robinson was scheduled to grill the Reform UK leader, although an episode of Tokyo Vice is currently on the schedule instead.

A statement from South Yorkshire Police said: “We have today arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of disorderly conduct in connection with a disturbance in Barnsley town centre.

“The man is believed to have thrown items from a nearby construction site. The suspect was quickly arrested and is in police custody.”
