A police statement about the incident read as follows:
The Totnes Neighbourhood Team were supported by the Specialist Force Support Group but as pockets of disorder broke out, extra officers from Ivybridge, Newton Abbot and Torquay were drafted in to remain on standby in anticipation of further disorder. Luckily that did not happen. One arrest was made for throwing a milkshake.
This comes just a few days after Benjamin was pelted with kippers by a protestor in Truro and after UKIP leader Gerard Batten had his battle bus hit by a milkshake
According to the Daily Mail, the latter incident happened in Plymouth city centre when a 20-year-old woman named Amy Thompson hurled a milkshake at Batten's image, which was on the side of his illegally parked bus, which also received a fine from the city's council.
