A WINDOW was smashed at a pub after controversial commentator Katie Hopkins performed a comedy gig last night, Thursday. 

Ms Hopkins appeared at the Star Inn, Whiteshill, last night for a comedy gig.

A window was smashed at the venue following the event - however there is no suggestion that it is linked to the protesters who gathered beforehand.
