Farage booed after highly charged EU speech

Farage laughing after his speech at the European Parliament

Nigel Farage has been booed by members of the European Parliament after a speech warning against punishing Britain for leaving the EU.

The South-East MEP told the chamber that "the consequences would be far worse for you than it would be for us" if the EU rejected a "sensible" trade deal with the UK.

He claimed that up to 100,000 jobs in the car manufacturing trade in Germany could be put at risk - and warned European nations not to "cut of your noses to spite your face".

Farage also drew ire from other MEPs for suggesting that "virtually none of you have done a day's work in your lives". He was supported by Eurosceptic MEPs from other countries, including Marine Le Pen of France's Front Nationale.
