It was a case of once bitten, twice shy-d at for Mid Norfolk Conservative candidate George Freeman!

While visiting the Shipdham Bank Holiday Monday traditional fete, Mr Freeman ended up in the stocks for the second time during the campaign.

On St George's Day in Wymondham he had watery sponges bombarded at him and then on Monday the missiles were custard pies.

'I suspect many voters would happily throw something much worse,' joked Mr Freeman.
