EU referendum: Tories and UKIP to run joint candidates?

UKIP's leader has spoken of running joint candidates at future elections after talks with some Conservative associations and one local Labour party.

Nigel Farage said the "pace of the debate" meant those seats could soon be named, but would not break confidentiality when he spoke to Jo Coburn on the Daily Politics.

He said the law allowed for a joint candidate to run with two party logos on a ballot paper.

Conservative MP Peter Bone spoke of uniting eurosceptic voices with a call to "harness those forces in some holy alliance".

Full debate: Peter Bone, Nigel Farage and Emma Reynolds
