David Cameron has reiterated that his Conservative Party will not enter any "pacts or deals" with Ukip in the run-up to the next general election.
"Of course if Ukip candidates stand down, or Ukip supporters want to back a local Conservative - because that's the only way to reform welfare, cut immigration, and get an EU referendum - then of course I'd support that," the Prime Minister told ITV News correspondent Paul Brand.
"But no pacts or deals."
