He is the sixth UKIP leader in the last three years.

The pro-Brexit party has suffered at the polls since its charismatic leader Nigel Farage quit in 2016.

In the last European election, the right-wing party lost all its MEPs.

Mr Braine said: “’We have got a great future and we are coming back. I am very excited and looking forward to leadership of this party, bringing the members together and delivering better results.”
