Ukip elects Henry Bolton as the party's new leader

He promised to pressure the government into a hard Brexit.

Bolton, 54, is a former police officer and served in the army.

"The other thing is, I do not believe for a moment that we should be pushing this out and allowing the negotiations to be endless before we leave".

"Brexit is our core task", Bolton announced.

"We want to be a confident and optimistic nation and we want to be a nation that is proud to be called British". There is an issue to be discussed.

He said: 'I do not see myself now as simply being your leader, I see myself as serving this party.
