UKIP candidate Anna-Marie Crampton, who has been suspended by her party for allegedly posting anti-Semitic remarks online, said she was hacked and not responsible for the comments.
She tweeted last night: "Im (sic) NOT antisemitic. I NEVER said i do not believe in the holocaust. I've clearly been trolled. I do post on Zionism as a political movement."
She later added: "Further, my great grandmother was jewish on my mother's side."
Ms Crampton later deleted her Twitter account.
