POLICE were called to the home of Thurrock UKIP candidate Clive Broad after BNP supporters demonstrated outside his home on the morning of the General Election.
The incident occurred at 11am this morning in Lodge Lane, Grays just as Mr Broad was going out to vote.
It is believed that over a dozen supporters waved flags and chanted slogans causing traffic to stop and disgruntled neighbours to call the police.
Mr Broad, 53 said: “It doesn’t bother me. It was hardly The Alamo. I went out and spoke to them. I heard other things kicked off nearby but I am just laughing it off.”
There are unconfirmed reports that a further incident occurred near to Mr Broad’s home that the police are looking into.
Further information to come.
