Farage: I had MEPs begging me to get rid of Amjad Bashir
An MEP who has defected to the Conservatives had "reached the end of the road" with UKIP, party leader Nigel Farage has said.
Amjad Bashir was suspended by UKIP over various allegations - all of which he denies - shortly before announcing his defection on Saturday.
Mr Farage told the BBC's Andrew Marr: "I had MEPs begging me to get rid of Amjad Bashir last year".
