Douglas Carswell: I will not seek to lead UKIP

UKIP MP Douglas Carswell says the UK must retain its current race laws, despite party leader Nigel Farage's wish to change them.

In an interview for the BBC's HARDtalk programme he also explicitly rules himself out of any leadership race within UKIP in future.

Mr Farage has said he will stand down as UKIP leader if fails to become an MP at the General Election.

You can watch the full interview on BBC World News on Wednesday 18 March at 00:30 GMT and on BBC World News on Tuesday 17 March at 16:30 and 22:30 GMT.
