Nigel Farage was campaigning in South Yorkshire when the alleged incident happened

Nigel Farage appears to have had at least one object thrown at him while on the campaign trail in South Yorkshire.

The Reform UK leader posted a video on X, formerly Twitter, which appeared to show objects being thrown at him while he was on top of a bus in Barnsley on Tuesday.

“I will not be bullied or cowed by a violent left-wing mob who hate our country,” he wrote about the incident.

South Yorkshire Police says it has arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of public order offences.

The video posted by Mr Farage showed a man in a red jacket throwing objects from a building site before being detained by police.

The incident comes a week after Mr Farage had a banana milkshake thrown at him while campaigning in Clacton.
