No police action against Farage over speech comments

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage will not face police action over remarks he made at a rally.

He said that he would “take the knife to the pen pushers in Whitehall” once Brexit was sorted.

Social media said the comments incited violence.

Gwent police issued a statement saying: “We are aware of the heightened tensions that exist regarding use of language and take all allegations and concerns from members of the public very seriously.

“However, following a thorough assessment, it is our view that the comments in the video, do not constitute a criminal offence.

“As such, Gwent police will not be taking any further action.”
