A senior UKIP politician has been filmed saying Britain should not send aid to what he called "Bongo Bongo Land".
Godfrey Bloom, who is a Member of the European Parliament, made the comments in a video obtained by the Guardian newspaper.
Mr Bloom - who denies being a racist - claims that the countries given the money sometimes squander it on luxury goods.
