Police stop McDonald's from selling milkshakes near Nigel Farage rally

Media playback is unsupported on your device                  Media caption Jeremy Corbyn Government hasn't shifted its view

Last week, police apparently ordered a McDonald's outlet near a Brexit Party campaign rally to stop selling milkshakes and ice cream, according to the restaurant's staff.

The Brexit Party had held a rally at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange in the evening, which is around the corner from the branch of McDonalds.

In an additional security move, staff at one of the chain's neighbouring sites were warned not to sell certain products.

"We will not be selling milkshakes or ice cream tonight", the sign read.

Nigel Farage's lavish lifestyle has been funded to the tune of almost half a million pounds by millionaire tycoon Arron Banks, a Channel 4 News investigation has claimed.

A statement from Mr Banks to Channel 4 News says: "Channel 4 attempts to smear myself and Nigel, come at a time when the Brexit Party is riding high in the polls, so it should come as no surprise to anyone".

Police Scotland declined to comment.
