Farage celebrates Article 50 triggering by heading to pub

Nigel Farage has celebrated the triggering of Article 50 by going to the pub for a pint.

The former UKIP leader said it was a "big day" and he was having a "minor celebration".

He added: "Every day is a sad day in the European Union because every single day that goes by opposition to the project grows amongst all 28 member states.

"The European Union may have been a good idea 60 years ago. It doesn't work anymore."
