Elections 2012: More on Miliband egged

Labour leader Ed Miliband was hit with an egg during a walkabout in Southampton today. The politician was giving a TV interview when a man in a hat came through the throng and slapped the egg on to his shoulder.

The egg broke on to Mr Miliband's jacket, which he quickly removed and gave to an aide as the man ran off down the street. He finished the interview in just a shirt and tie, made an exit and went back to his car.
