Two protesters have thrown milkshake at UKIP European election candidate Carl Benjamin at a rally.
Mr Benjamin is holding a gathering on Lemon Quay in Truro, Cornwall, with British activist Milo Yiannopoulos.
It’s understood a man and a woman tried to target Mr Benjamin with the milkshake, but missed.
Supporters of Mr Benjamin pulled the man to the ground after he threw the milkshake. Police said they received reports of an altercation.
The man was later seen walking away.
Devon & Cornwall Police said in a statement: “A milkshake was reportedly thrown over a member of the public by a man wearing black clothing and a white mask.
“Police carried out inquiries but the ‘victim’ did not make themselves known to officers.
“No official complaint has been received.”
A female protester was also prevented from throwing kippers at Mr Benjamin.
Other protesters at the rally included a busker who set up close by, playing loudly to try to drown the two speakers out.
Police are currently investigating remarks made by Mr Benjamin after Labour MP Jess Phillips accused him of malicious communications.
He is running to become an MEP for South-West England, one of 47 candidates in the constitiuency.
The Truro incident comes after Tommy Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, had milkshakes thrown at him in Warrington, Cheshire, and Bury in Greater Manchester while campaigning as a European Parliament candidate for North-West England.
