Speaking to supporters in Great Yarmouth following the attack, Reform UK leader Nigel Farage pledged to “not surrender” to the mob and to continue campaigning, following his attack in Yorkshire.

Farage told the crowd: “Whilst it is concerning and whilst of course it does make me thoughtful and I may need to change tactics slightly, but I’m going to make one promise to you and the tens of thousands watching this live online and the media.

“And my promise is this I will not surrender to the mob. I will not stop campaigning.”
