UKIP is a strong political force in Doncaster, claims its leader Nigel Farage.

In an interview with the New Statesman, Mr Farage said his party was the only party that could challenge Labour in the north of England.

He said: “Everybody thought that people’s tribal allegiance to Labour was as strong, if not stronger, than the tribal allegiance to the Conservative Party. What we’re actually finding is, they don’t even recognise the tribe.”

“The Lib Dems have gone. I think we can come second in every seat in the north of England.

“The question is: how many can we win? We’re targeting our resources.

“We’re going to target Heywood and Middleton pretty heavily. And Rotherham. And we’re doing very, very well in Doncaster.”
