Dale is sorry for seafront scuffle.

THE publisher of former spin doctor Damian McBride's memoirs has issued a public apology after accepting a caution for assaulting a protester during a live television interview. Iain Dale, who scuffled with campaigner Stuart Holmes as he tried to move him out of shot, admitted he had been "frankly idiotic". "I want to apologise and say sorry to Stuart Holmes, who is a passionate campaigner well known to everyone who attends party conferences and perfectly entitled to do as he did on Tuesday in trying to get attention for his causes. It was totally out of character to react in the way I did," Mr Dale said.
