A spokesperson for Cheshire Police said: “We are aware of an allegation of assault made following an incident in Bridge Street in Warrington this afternoon. We are looking into the circumstances.”

It has also been reported that Robinson has made the allegation of assault.

The incident came a day after Robinson had a milkshake thrown at him on the campaign trail in Bury.

In a video, he said he had been “punched and slapped” by two other people in separate incidents in Warrington adding: “I was politically targeted.

"I so want to win this. No amount of punches, milkshakes, attacks or anything is going to stop me.”
