Comic taunts David Blaine with fry-up

Henry Naylor has been given a police warning after attacking David Blaine with a full English breakfast.

The comic was trying to outdo earlier pranksters who had pelted eggs at the translucent box suspended in mid-air where Blaine is claiming to endure 44 days without food.

But security at the site, near London's Tower Bridge, has been tightened since the earlier attack and bouncers quickly pounced on 37-year-old Naylor.

He was handed over to police who released him with a warning, London's Evening Standard reports.

Naylor, who used to play Rowan Atkinson's sidekick Bough in the Barclaycard TV adverts, is currently appearing in the Radio 2 show Pull-Out Sections with double-act partner Andy Parsons.
