Farage takes out newspaper ad to deny racism claims

Ukip leader Nigel Farage has taken out a full page advertisement in the Telegraph newspaper to write an open letter in which he says his comments about Romanian people in a radio interview were not racist.

"We should not be in a political union with Romania," he writes, adding: "It is not racist to want to stop organised criminal gangs undermining our way of life."
