Farage, who was snapped dodging the flying objects, said wet cement from a nearby work site was also thrown.

A coffee cup was launched at him shortly after with its contents thrown out.

Cops detained and arrested the thug following the attack.

Farage has thanked South Yorkshire Police for their repsonse.

He said: “My huge thanks to South Yorkshire Police today.

“I will not be bullied or cowed by a violent left-wing mob who hate our country.”

It was understood police warned Farage not to get on the bus before the parade.

It comes just one week after he was splattered in the face with a milkshake.
