A Ukip councillor in Cambridgeshire says she is considering standing to take Nigel Farage's place as party leader.

Lisa Duffy, who is a councillor for Ramsey ward on Huntingdonshire District Council, said she is strongly considering running and will make her decision within 48 hours.

"I'll be looking at what my plan will be and what support I'm going to get. "The main consideration will be making sure it's the right thing for my family. It's not a job that comes without pressure. "Personally, right at this second, I'm more heading towards the not doing it but it's about making sure the support would be there in the party."
