You’ll be beheaded: Ukip candidate threatened by voter ranting about attacks on Muslims

David Robinson-Young, an ex police officer, received the call from a man “ranting” about the British government bombing Muslim countries.

Northumbria Police are investigating the angry phone exchange, which went on for 20 minutes and was made by a man calling himself Mr Khan.

Mr Khan is claimed to have said he lived in Newcastle upon Tyne East – the seat Mr Robinson-Young is campaigning for in the General Election.

Mr Robinson-Young said the phone call was “chilling” in light of recent terror attacks.
