One of the candidates to replace Nigel Farage as Ukip leader has called for a total ban of Muslim state schools.
Cambridgeshire councillor Lisa Duffy said the move was required to tackle radicalisation.
In an interview with the Daily Express, she said: “I will be calling for the Government to close British Islamic faith schools.
“That doesn’t mean I am picking on British Islam, but if you think about what our security services are looking at 2,000 individuals that have come from those faith schools. When does indoctrination start?”
An announcement is expected at midday after final checks by a National Executive Committee-led panel.Read the full story ›

Businessman Arron Banks has refused to rule out standing for the leadership of the UK Independence Party.
Asked whether he is in the frame to replace Nigel Farage, Banks told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "I haven't decided. I think it will be someone like Steven Woolfe but I haven't discounted it completely."
He denied having any contact with Andrea Leadsom about her leadership bid.
But he threw his support behind the energy minister in the race for Number 10, claiming Theresa May could "betray" the result of the EU referendum if she wins.
Banks also said Ukip could win "30-40" seats from the "disconnected" Labour Party at the next general election.
