Mayor George Ferguson 'roughed up' at Bristol book event

Bristol mayor George Ferguson has had a cup of cold coffee poured over his head at the Bristol Anarchist Bookfair.

Mr Ferguson tweeted to his 9,700-plus followers that he had been "roughed up" at the Trinity Centre event but that it was "all in a days work".

He told BBC Radio Bristol he was pushed to the ground when he offered to shake the hand of the man who poured the coffee.
