Ukip politician Victoria Ayling has hit her party with a new racism row after footage was published in which she said all immigrants to Britain should be sent home.

In video filmed by her then-husband Rob Ayling in 2008, the councillor makes off-the-cuff remarks including: "I just want to send the lot back but I can’t say that."

The film, published by the Daily Mail, includes multiple takes of Ayling's attempts to explain her personal views on immigration - but also her comments to her husband behind the camera between takes.

The Ukip member defected from the Conservatives earlier this year.
