UKIP candidate defects to Tories

BBC Radio Devon

Before the result is in a man who stood as a candidate for UKIP in the general election has announced he will be leaving the party.

Tim Matthews, UKIP candidate in Central Devon, said: "It will take us all time to get used to the new realities that we are faced with but one thing is clear; Britain’s brief foray into multiparty politics is over. Like it or not, we are now well and truly back into two party politics.

"Against this background, given the need to get behind Brexit negotiations, and to be true to ourselves, we now have to make choices. And I have made mine. I have joined the Conservative Party."
