From Newcastle this morning to Wakefield this afternoon.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage is currently talking to press on his Brexit bus outside the Calder and Hop pub on Northgate, but the Express has been told he won't be stepping off the bus in fear of a second 'attack' after being covered with what is believed to be milkshake in Newcastle earlier today.

A large crowd has gathered outside the pub and around the bus, with supporters chanting as well as anti-racism protesters.
