A protester has attempted to pelt George Galloway with eggs as he left for open top bus victory of Bradford.
The new MP for Bradford West was unhurt as the man threw around a dozen eggs, shouting "he's a parasite, a sycophant, we don't want him here".
Galloway seemed unfazed by the attack, climbing on to the bus, lighting a cigar and giving a victory sign. Onlookers applauded and car horns were sounded as the bus moved through the city centre.

No stranger to attention, the new MP for Bradford West has been attracting plenty of it, with dozens of people arriving at the solicitor's office he is using as a base to catch a glimpse of him.
One onlooker said: "I think to call it a 'Bradford Spring' is a bit much, but this has shown people how their vote can make a difference. I don't think something like this will happen again but it's got everyone talking hasn't it? And they talk about voter apathy?"
