A DUP MLA has said he has reported a Twitter user to the police for offering anyone £150 to throw acid at him.

The comments were made about Christopher Stalford on Tuesday.

They came after Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage pressed charges against a man who threw a milkshake at him while campaigning in Newcastle.

Northumbria Police subsequently charged 32-year-old Paul Crowther with common assault and criminal damage.

In response to the incident, Mr Stalford posted a message reading: "Milkshake today. Acid tomorrow", to which one user wrote: "COMPETITION TIME. First person to milkshake Christopher Stalford will receive £100 from me."

Underneath the comment, however, a sinister message was posted, stating: "I'll go 150 for acid".

Mr Stalford said he has reported the user in question to the police.
