UKIP leader Nigel Farage said his party is continuing to campaign and is doing so in the 'spirit' of Margaret Thatcher.

He said: "If I think about the abiding memory of Margaret Thatcher it is indeed after the Brighton bomb.

"People had been killed, people were still in intensive care, but she insisted that not only did the conference continue, but she was going to be there on the platform at 9am the next morning. I think in that spirit we should continue campaigning."
