Newly-elected Mark Reckless: 'UKIP are agents of change'

Mark Reckless has been sworn in as UKIP's second directly elected MP, after winning the Rochester and Strood by-election.

He polled nearly 3,000 more votes than the Conservative candidate. Labour were third and the Greens fourth, while the Lib Dems recorded their lowest vote in a by-election.

Mr Reckless spoke to the BBC's Ben Wright as he travelled from his by-election win to London.

The newly-elected UKIP MP said the Conservatives had been a "cosy cartel at Westminster for too long".
