Nigel Farage has spoken to the people of Workington about his hopes for Britain's future.

The Brexit Party leader was greeted with a standing ovation as he entered the Washington Central Hotel in Workington this morning, ready to answer the public's questions.

New Workington candidate David Walker was by his side, and promised to "put the work back into Workington".

Mr Farage began his speech by addressing the term "Workington man", and said: "I think it's patronising, and it's a load of rubbish."

He also encouraged his supporters to vote for "the one party that's for Brexit", saying he will bring democracy back to the UK.

The former UKIP leader will continue his tour of Cumbria, making his way to Whitehaven this afternoon with a trip to Carlisle this evening.
