The Leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage, was attacked when he arrived in Kent this afternoon. The MEP was in Cliftonville to address supporters.
A small but hostile crowd was outside. And in the demo, Mr Farage - who is still recovering from a major operation - was hit over the head with a placard.
Police have interviewed the UKIP leader and protesters about the assault. Nigel Farage told
our Political Correspondent , Phil Hornby, he found the event frightening.
