Nigel Farage delivered his Ukip conference speech from what appeared to be two pages of hastily-scribbled notes.

The notes contain a series of cues and slogans - some of which are illegible - rather than fully-formed sentences.

The first page is entitled "Conference Speech" under which are the words: "One year on Victory ... WE DID IT"

Other phrases in the notes include "Home front," "Time of change" and "Ukip positive political movement".

Next to the words "Scottish referendum" it says "ENGLAND VOICE". and next to "Immigration" it says "numbers out of control".

The final words on the page are: "Hold balance power referendum".
