>Breaking news: Farage to restand for UKIP Leadership


Nigel Farage.

Former UKIP Leader Nigel Farage has thrown his hat into the ring to hold the role once again.

The most well known UKIP member, the MEP stood down as leader a year ago to challenge Speaker John Bercow in his seat in Buckingham. The campaign was widely considered a disaster, with Farage polling third in the seat. On polling day, Farage and a pilot suffered serious injuries when the plane they were in became entangled in the UKIP it was flying.

Nigel Farage will run against current UKIP Deputy Leader David Campbell Bannerman to succeed Lord Pearson of Rannoch, who recently stood down after a poor general election campaign. UKIP conference starts today in Torquay.
