A man who threw a milkshake over Nigel Farage during a city centre walkabout must pay the politician £350 compensation and complete 150 hours of unpaid work, following the “politically motivated attack”.
Earlier on Tuesday, Paul Crowther pleaded guilty to common assault and criminal damage after the Brexit Party leader’s suit was left covered in milkshake after Crowther threw it over him.
Paul Crowther, who was arrested at the scene after being filmed dousing Mr Farage with the £5.25 banana and salted caramel Five Guys milkshake, told journalists the act was “a right of protest against people like him”.
