Steven Woolfe to sit as independent MEP

Ukip leadership frontrunner Steven Woolfe has announced he is to sit as an independent MEP for the North West after resigning from the party.

Mr Woolfe said he has "come to the conclusion that UKIP is ungovernable without Nigel Farage leading it and the referendum cause to unite it".

The party's former spokesman on Immigration said the UKIP is "riddled with infighting, proxy wars between rival camps and is run by an NEC that is not fit for purpose".

His resignation comes just just weeks after collapsing in the EU parliament following an altercation with a fellow MEP.

Mr Woolfe says his collapse has has a lasting effect.
