Nigel Farage's farewell speech to the UKIP Conference in Bournemouth included his memories of an interview with ITV Meridian 17 years ago...
Diane James, the Member of the European Parliament for the South East, today became the new leader of UKIP - taking over from Nigel Farage.

Conservative former disabilities minister Justin Tomlinson has said he is "truly sorry" for leaking a parliamentary report.
The North Swindon MP told MPs he had been naive when he shared the draft findings of an inquiry into regulation of the consumer credit industry with an employee of payday lender Wonga.
Mr Tomlinson faces being suspended from the House of Commons for two days after a Commons sleaze watchdog found he "committed a contempt" in disclosing the report.
Making a statement in the chamber, the Tory MP's voice cracked as he said: "I accept that my actions in sharing the report constituted interference in the work of the committee for public accounts and for this I am truly sorry.
"This was never my intention. These actions came as a result of my own naivety, driven by a desire to strengthen regulations on payday lenders and protect vulnerable consumers."
