Unhappy with his message, one witness said he saw some members of the small crowd head into a nearby shop to purchase milk and eggs in a bid to stop his preaching.

A witness recorded footage which showed a group giving the man "five seconds" to stop before they drenched him in milk.

Humberside Police were called and the witness said he saw three officers lead the man away from the scene to de-escalate the situation as the crowd cheered.

The witness said a police van was present which led him away.
