Nigel Farage has launched his general election campaign by saying his Brexit party will contest every seat in the country unless Boris Johnson agrees to drop his deal with the EU and sign up to a "leave alliance". See 12.27pm for a full summary.
Nigel Farage has "effectively handed" seats such as Hartlepool to Labour with his pledge to contest every seat and potentially split the leave vote in December's election, the chairman of the town's Conservative party has said.
That's all from me for today.
Thanks for the comments.
