UKIP: Diane James having 'constructive meetings' with AMs

UKIP leader Diane James has said Neil Hamilton is the party's leader in Wales during a visit to Cardiff.

Ms James has been meeting UKIP AMs to try and solve the rift between Mr Hamilton and UKIP MEP Nathan Gill.

Mr Gill had been appointed UKIP Wales leader by her predecessor Nigel Farage.

Asked who was UKIP's Welsh leader during a series of chaotic impromptu interviews in the Senedd, Ms James told ITV Wales: "I understand it's Neil Hamilton at the moment."

She walked away when asked the same question by BBC Wales reporter James Williams, but did say she hoped Mr Gill - now sitting as an independent AM - would re-join the UKIP Assembly group.
