Claudio Ranieri has said his "dream died" when Leicester sacked him.

The Italian led the Foxes to last season's Premier League title, but on Thursday he lost his job.

Leicester are battling against relegation this term and decided a change was needed to give the team the best possible chance of survival.

But being removed from his post hurt Ranieri, who said on Friday: "Yesterday my dream died.

"After the euphoria of last season and being crowned Premier League champions all I dreamt of was staying with Leicester City, the club I love, for always.

"Sadly this was not to be."

Paul Nuttall's office in Hanley, Stoke-On-Trent, appears to be defaced with red graffiti.

The Ukip leader and Stoke-On-Trent Central by-election candidate lost out to Labour candidate Gareth Snell by 2,620 votes on Friday.

ITV News Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen said Ukip would be "very disappointed" with the defeat.

"They thought they would run Labour much, much closer. It was a reasonably substantial loss", he added.

The vandalism comes days after Mr Nuttall apologised after he faced a storm of criticism over website posts that wrongly claimed he lost "close personal friends" at the Hillsborough disaster.
