Wife of Welsh UKIP candidate allegedly assaulted by Labour supporter

The wife of a UKIP Welsh Assembly candidate was allegedly assaulted at the count at Coleg Cambria.

While Nigel Williams was giving a speech following the declarations of the results of the election in which he came third, his wife Susan was reportedly grabbed round the throat by a woman wearing a Labour rosette after telling Labour supporters to stop booing and hissing her husband. Another UKIP member stepped in to help her.

The incident has been reported to the police but the Labour Party have closed ranks and won't identify the alleged offender.
