5 March 2014 Last updated at 09:02 GMT

Nick Clegg's claims that Nigel Farage should work harder in Europe are "hypocritical", the UKIP leader has claimed.

Mr Farage's comments come as the deputy prime minister is set to accuse him of "rarely" turning up to vote in Brussels.

But Mr Farage said he was surprised at such comments, claiming Mr Clegg had only taken part in 22% of votes in the House of Commons this parliament.

Speaking to the Today programme, Liberal Democrat MP Nigel Horwood also reiterated claims that the UKIP leader should "turn up and work for Britain".

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Wednesday 5 March.
