A UKIP candidate who appeared to be making a Nazi-salute in pictures posted on Facebook has been suspended by the party, the BBC reports.
Alex Wood, 22, who was a candidate for Blackmore Vale ahead of this Thursday's local elections, said his account had been "hijacked" and that the comments under the photo were not written by him.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage earlier said the pictures, which appeared on the front page of a national newspaper, did "not look very pretty."
