UKIP leader Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage has announced he is stepping down as leader of UKIP.

The shock announcement was made in the last few minutes.

He said of his decision: “I won’t be changing my mind again, I can promise you” in reference to his previous resignation, which he reversed to run a campaign for Brexit.

He said now that Brexit had been achieved, he felt it was time to step down.

He said he did not believe there would be a general election in the UK this autumn, despite leadership struggles in both the Conservatives and in the Labout party.
