UKIP leader Nigel Farage has described protesters who besieged him in an Edinburgh pub as "fascist scum".
Mr Farage had to be escorted from the Canons' Gait pub in a police van after angry confrontations on Thursday.
In an interview with BBC Radio Scotland on Friday, which ended when Mr Farage hung up mid-conversation, he said the incident was deeply racist and displayed a total hatred of the English.
