Today’s front pages: ‘milkshaken’ Farage and rise in racism

A round-up of headlines in UK newspapers on 21 May

The striking image of Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage drenched in banana milkshake hurled by a protester in Newcastle made many front pages this morning, with the Daily Express declaring the incident “an affront to democracy”.

The Independent pairs the image with the news that the party is to be investigated by the elections watchdog over alleged foreign donations, while The Guardian’s photo is accompanied by a front-page story on rising rates of racism in Britain since the Brexit vote.

Elsewhere, The Daily Telegraph leads on Tory leadership hopeful Dominic Raab’s calls for cuts to income tax, and The Daily Mail reveals that Prince Charles will host a “tea party summit” for Donald Trump when he visits the UK next month.
