He said that despite disappointment in the general election there are still "a lot of people" voting for the party. He said that older Ukip voters had defected to Tory "for fear of the SNP".

"It's now the under-30s that are beginning to vote for Ukip in significant numbers," he said ahead in Thanet ahead of the crucial South Thanet vote declaration.

It's going to change Ukip quite radically - it's going to become a more radical campaigning party for political reform and social reform.

I can see Ukip becoming a very young and active political force. There will be disappointment but as far as the Ukip story's concerned, we're beginning a different chapter.

– Nigel Farage
