As the person who posted this on Twitter commented: “Last week a woman murdered, today an old man punched, tomorrow a baby thrown out of a pram.”

Personally, I tend to believe somebody will be throwing their toys out of their pram the following day. Who that will be depends on the result of the referendum.

A 78-year-old man has been punched in the face while handing out Remain leaflets, it has been alleged.

The man was reportedly giving out the leaflets on a busy high street in Carlisle when he became involved in an altercation with another man, 52, about the upcoming EU referendum.

He was struck in the face and suffered minor injuries in the alleged attack.

The incident took place outside House of Fraser on English Street, Carlisle.

In a statement, Cumbria Police said they have arrested a man in connection with the alleged assault.
