A man has been charged with common assault and criminal damage after he threw a milkshake at pro-Brexit politician Nigel Farage in Newcastle.

Farage was left with milkshake dripping down his suit less than half an hour into his rally in Newcastle on Monday.

Thirty-two-year-old Paul Crowther is due to appear at North Tyneside Magistrates' Court on June 18.

Farage is the latest anti-EU figure to be attacked with a milkshake ahead of Thursday's vote.
