'UKIP members back me', says leader Nathan Gill

UKIP's leader in Wales has insisted he has the backing of party members, despite calls for him to stand down in a row over assembly candidates.

Nathan Gill said claims he had failed to represent rank-and-file members were "nonsense".

He refused to quit in the run-up to May's election, with pollsters tipping UKIP to win its first Senedd seats.

Mr Gill also said he was determined to campaign in the EU referendum - "the whole reason why I joined UKIP".

He spoke to BBC Wales political correspondent Daniel Davies.
