Farage And Family 'Chased' From Pub

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has been "chased" from a pub in south London as he had lunch with his family.

According to reports a group of protesters "invaded" the Queen's Head pub in Downe, Kent, as Mr Farage was having lunch with his wife and two young children.

Mr Farage and his family are said to have been "chased out of the pub", with protesters jumping on the bonnet of his car as he tried to drive away.

"I hope these 'demonstrators' are proud of themselves. My children were so scared by their behaviour that they ran away to hide," Mr Farage is quoted by the BBC.

"... A relative has gone to look for them, and they are not yet at home. These people are scum."
