UKIP leader Nigel Farage has visited a Thai constituent and her husband to apologise after another of the party's MEPs described her as a "ting tong from somewhere".

South East MEP Janice Atkinson was recorded commenting about mobile food seller Fa Munday, by BBC South East Today in Ramsgate, Kent, on Friday. She later apologised.

Mrs Munday's husband Vincent said it was outrageous, rude and offensive.

Mr Farage offered the couple "mega, mega apologies".
