Nigel Farage 'gleeful' at Nick Clegg's EU debate challenge

UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage has accepted a challenge from Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg to take part in a public debate on Britain's membership of the EU.

The gauntlet was thrown down by the Liberal Democrat leader during a radio phone-in on Thursday.

Nigel Farage, whose party wants to leave the EU, said he accepted the challenge from Mr Clegg ''gleefully''.
