UKIP candidates to be ranked by grassroots, says Gill

UKIP members will decide the final rankings of regional candidates for May's assembly elections after a row within the party.

Some local UKIP branches have raised concerns candidates from outside Wales would be imposed on them.

Former Tory MPs Neil Hamilton and Mark Reckless will be among the names under consideration, despite some activists claiming their selection would be damaging to the party's chances.

UKIP Wales leader Nathan Gill said the decision to give party members the final say was "a great move forward".
