Kerry Smith apologises for 'Only Fools and Horses' language

Kerry Smith, a Basildon councillor who resigned from UKIP after a recording was published of him making racist and homophobic remarks, has apologised "unreservedly".

But he said his comments were "no worse than watching an old episode of Only Fools and Horses", the BBC sitcom.

Mr Smith had been the party's prospective parliamentary candidate for the Essex seat of South Basildon and East Thurrock.
