The UK Independence Party leader Paul Nuttall visited Hartlepool today following his announcement that he would run as the candidate for the Boston and Skegness constituency in the General Election. Britain is to go to the polls on June 8, 2017 after British Prime Minister Theresa May called for a snap general election.

Before his arrival arguments and a brawl broke out on the street outside a pub where UKIP supporters were gathering ahead of the visit and were heckled by a small group of pro-europe supporters. During the confrontation a female supporter from each of the opposing sides ended up brawling on the pavement and were subsequently taken away by police.

Mr Nuttall then did interviews and a short walkabout for media photo opportunities before heading down to the Boston area.
