UKIP's Nigel Farage explains why he hung up on BBC Scotland

Nigel Farage has said he hung up on an interview with BBC Scotland because the line of questioning "was insulting and unpleasant".

The UKIP leader was speaking on Good Morning Scotland following angry protests in Edinburgh on Thursday during a campaign to win over the Scottish electorate.

He told the BBC he did not regret the interview's abrupt ending, adding: "I wasn't very impressed with it."

A spokesperson for BBC Scotland said: "The BBC stands by the interview, which was robust but fair."
