The Brexit Party leader withdrew his threat to take on the Tories in the General Election and will instead fight for seats held by Labour and the "Remainer" parties.

At a news conference, Mr Farage announced he will not be standing candidates in all 600 seats, as it would result in a hung Parliament.

The former UKIP leader had faced calls to stand down Brexit Party candidates in seats where they could split the Tory vote and jeopardise the chances of Brexit.

Speaking at a rally in Hartlepool, he said the Brexit Party would not take on the 317 seats held by the Conservative Party.

Instead, they will target Labour seats and "take on the rest of the Remainer parties".

"We will stand up and we will fight them all," he said.

The Brexit Party leader said he had "genuinely tried" to form a Leave alliance with Prime Minister Boris Johnson, but had been unsuccessful.

James Cleverly talking to Good Morning Britain

Piers Presses James Cleverly on the Tory party 'Doctored' video of Keir Starmer

The chairman of the Conservative party, James Cleverly, refused to apologise for his party posting a video on social media, despite being accused of 'doctoring' the video, seemingly trying to make senior Labour member, Keir Starmer, appear to struggle to answer questions on Brexit.

Starmer had in fact given a full answer during his interview with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.

Piers described the video as ‘fake news’, saying the Tories had “deliberately re-edited, as a party, the end of exchange to make it look like Keir Starmer didn’t answer. In fact, he answered immediately and fluidly. That is the definition of fake news.”

Cleverly responded by saying: “we edited the video, just like you edit stuff on your programme, just like everybody else, because we needed to shorten the video.”
