UKIP's Diane James: Not my style to read the riot act

UKIP's new leader Diane James has tried to downplay divisions in the Welsh party, saying they were down to "people being a little bit excited".

UKIP Wales leader Nathan Gill now sits as an independent AM, while rival Neil Hamilton leads UKIP's assembly group.

Ms James told BBC Wales that she had inherited "a certain amount of disarray in Wales" but the party's AMs were "a superb bunch of people".

She will meet them individually next Monday to try to heal rifts, but said she would not be "reading the riot act" because it was "not my style".
