Farage 'sorry' for Jack Sen's comments

Nigel Farage has said he regrets alleged anti-Semitic comments made by a Ukip general election candidate - and insisted his party was not racist.

Jack Sen, who was standing in West Lancashire, has been suspended after directing abuse at Labour candidate Luciana Berger.

Speaking to ITV News, Mr Farage said he was "sorry" about the comments, adding:

We've got over 5000 people standing for us at this election, and less than a handful have caused us a problem.

Ukip is a non-sectarian, non-racist party and we've actually got a remarkable number of people standing for us from every singel walk of life, from every religion and every ethnic group in this country.

– Nigel Farage, Ukip leader
