Nigel Farage has hit back at claims made by the Archbishop of Canterbury that he is 'legitimising racism'.
Giving evidence to the Commons Home Affairs Committee, Mr Welby was responding to comments by the Ukip leader that remaining in the EU could lead to sex attacks such as those seen in Cologne on New Year's Eve.
Speaking at a Buzzfeed/Facebook town hall event where he was taking questions from social media users, Mr Farage said: "I was asked the question 'Is the nuclear bomb in this campaign the mass sex attacks on New Years Eve in Cologne?'
"I said this could be the nuclear bomb, it is an issue. End of it. Didn't say any more. I didn't mention sex attacks, didn't mention rape, didn't mention any of those things that were in the title - and that were sadly latched onto by this troublesome priest that we have in Canterbury."

The Archbishop of Canterbury has suggested that blessing gay marriages would divide the Anglican Church because some worshippers in Africa would never support homosexuality.
In an interview with The Telegraph, the Most Rev Justin Welby says that the Church had probably caused “great harm” to homosexuals in the past — but there was not always a “huge amount” that could be done now to rectify the situation.
“We are struggling with the reality that there are different groups around the place that the Church can do - or has done - great harm to,” the Archbishop says.
“How do you hold those two things [in balance] and do what is right and just by all? And not only by one group that you prefer and that is easier to deal with? That’s not acceptable."
