Ukip MEP for the North West and former leader Paul Nuttall has become the latest leading figure in the party to announce his resignation.

It's in protest at the decision to appoint controversial figure Tommy Robinson as an adviser.

Mr Nuttall said he made the decision after 'much soul-searching' and says he'll will continue to serve the North West in the European Parliament until his term expires.
