UKIP election candidate Roger Latchford calls in the police after a confrontation with a local councillor

The trouble arose after councillor Bernard La Roche stood holding a placard with a Nazi swastika in front of Latchford’s stall.

Latchford was until recently in the Tory party and previously the deputy leader of Thanet Council.

He was a close colleague and friend of the ex-leader of the council, currently serving 18 months in prison for misconduct in public office.
