UKIP's Nigel Farage pulls out of Croydon event

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has pulled out of a musical carnival organised by his party after supporters clashed with protesters in the street.

A steel band hired for the event in Croydon, south London, refused to continue playing when told they had been hired on behalf of UKIP.

UKIP's Winston McKenzie said Mr Farage had withdrawn for security reasons.

Ross Hawkins reports.
