'Ukip councillor' assault caution

A man has been cautioned for assault following video footage which has emerged showing a confrontation between someone claiming to be a Ukip councillor and an anti-fascist campaign group.

Norfolk police said a 72-year-old man from Caister-On-Sea near Great Yarmouth had been cautioned for a minor assault in relation to an incident at the Drill Hall in Artillery Square.

Campaign group Hope not Hate had hired the venue from which to hand out anti-Ukip leaflets to volunteers in the area.

Hope not Hate member David Braniff-Herbert is shown in video footage telling a man who he describes as a Ukip councillor to leave the venue.

Following a heated exchange Mr Braniff-Herbert claims he was "slapped".
