Nigel Farage has hit out at "taxpayer-funded" protesters who he says are trying to prevent Ukip from spreading its message, after he was hit with an egg during a visit to Nottingham today.
Of the protests against him so far during his national tour, Mr Farage said: "They're organised, they're taxpayer funded and they're going around the country chasing me around trying to stop us from getting our message out.
"That is a fundamentally anti-democratic thing to do. It's not good and it's not healthy."
Speaking at the Bell Inn after the incident, Mr Farage said his brief visit had indicated "some of the inhabitants" of Nottingham "are not all that friendly".
"I'm sure that's not the view of most," he said.
