A video has emerged of a woman throwing a milkshake at a double-parked UKIP bus during a European Union election rally.
The bus was parked in Plymouth’s city centre, which was the site of an event featuring controversial MEP candidate Carl Benjamin on Saturday.
Amy Thompson, 20, hurled the milkshake onto the illegally parked bus to protest against the appearance of UKIP, and Mr Benjamin, in her city.

A picture of UKIP leader Gerard Batten was covered with the beverage after the incident and the bus also received a parking fine from the city’s council.
Mr Benjamin has recently courted controversy for Tweeting in 2016 he ‘wouldn’t even rape’ Labour Birmingham Yardley MP Jess Phillips.
The popular Youtuber went even further last month when he said in a video that ‘with enough pressure I might cave’, before adding ‘but, let’s be honest, nobody’s got that much beer’.
Ms Thompson said Mr Benjamin’s comments were awful.
‘I really hate UKIP, but I really hate Carl Benjamin even more,’ she said.
Ms Thompson said she vandalised the bus, because she ‘hated’ UKIP and ‘really hates’ its MEP candidate Carl Benjamin
‘My non-violent act was a great way to express what the people of Plymouth think about UKIP.’
Mr Benjamin was also confronted in the Cornish town of Truro on Friday, with people throwing kippers at him in one incident.
Another protester unsuccessfully tried to throw a milkshake on him in a separate incident, sparking a fist fight with his supporters.

The acts mimic recent videos, which have depicted controversial figures being showered with milkshakes.
UKIP adviser, and English Defence League founder, Tommy Robinson had milkshakes thrown on him two days in a row earlier this month while campaigning for the European elections.
