The east London home of UKIP MEP Gerard Batten has been attacked and a brick thrown through his living room window.
My wife and I were woken at 3:30am by a noise downstairs. On investigating we could see nothing out of place and went back to bed, assuming the noise had been caused by a household pet.
We were woken 45 minutes later by a much louder noise, accompanied by the sound of breaking glass. On rushing downstairs, we discovered that a house brick had been thrown through our living room window. The police were informed and are currently investigating.
