Ukip leader loses no confidence vote

Ukip’s ruling national executive has unanimously backed a no-confidence motion in the party leader Henry Bolton – well, unanimously apart from Mr Bolton himself. He’s insisted he won’t step down.

Earlier Mr Bolton warned that if he was kicked out of the job – the party “is probably over”.

Party officials tried to keep details of today’s NEC meeting secret – but there was no hiding from our political correspondent Michael Crick. And a warning – his report does contain some flash photography.
