A Portsmouth Lib Dem councillor said a man threw hot coffee over him while manning a Stop Brexit stall.

Lee Hunt said he was also slapped on the head by the man in Southsea on Saturday.

The councillor, who was not injured, initially revealed details of the incident on Facebook, the Portsmouth News reported, but later posted the following statement: "Thanks everyone for all the support and kind comments... Police enquires underway now so I’ve taken the post down."

Officers said they were investigating after receiving a report a man had been assaulted in Palmerston Road between 14:00 and 14:30 BST.

"It was reported that a man threw a cup of coffee at another man. The man left but returned shortly afterwards and slapped the victim on top of his head," a police spokesman said.

Portsmouth City Council has completed its £138m purchase of the city's main office campus.

Lakeside North Harbour includes the headquarters of IBM and Southern Co-Operative.

The site, spread over more than 100 acres, is the latest in a string of commercial properties bought by the authority since 2015.

The council said its other recent property investments, valued at about £160m, were out-of-borough and income-driven, while Lakeside had been bought to support the local economy in the longer term.

A decision on whether the council proceeds with the freehold purchase is set to be made on 17 June

It is vital that we continue to be ambitious on behalf of the people of Portsmouth, and so it is right that the council considers the possibility of purchasing Lakeside as an important strategic site for business and the future of the city."
