Ukip donor Arron Banks has Tweeted a bizarre string of comments about the Hillsborough disaster.
It comes after Ukip leader Paul Nuttall admitted that he didn't have close friends who died at the disaster.
Steve Kelly, who lost his brother Michael at the Hillsborough disaster said:
I'm appalled by Nuttall's comments. If he was there why didn't he support the campaigning for answers.
I also finds Arron Banks's comments hugely offensive and ill informed.

The Sun newspaper has confirmed that Liverpool FC has banned its journalists from Anfield and has withdrawn accreditation.
The Sun has been widely boycotted in Liverpool due to its reporting of the city's football fans' behaviour at the Hillsborough disaster.
Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.
The Premier League club's boss Jürgen Klopp told reporters:
I don't talk with The Sun anymore.
In a statement, the newspaper said:
The Sun and Liverpool FC have had a solid working relationship for the 28 years since the Hillsborough tragedy. Banning journalists from a club is bad for fans and bad for football. The Sun can reassure readers this won’t affect our full football coverage.
The Sun deeply regrets its reporting of the tragic events at Hillsborough and understands the damage caused by those reports is still felt by many in the city.
A new generation of journalists on the paper congratulate the families on the hard fought victory they have achieved through the inquest. It is to their credit that the truth has emerged and, whilst we can’t undo the damage done, we would like to further a dialogue with the city and to show that the paper has respect for the people of Liverpool.
The newspaper’s ‘The Truth’ front page in 1989 falsely alleged that Liverpool fans stole from the dead and obstructed the emergency services.
