General election 2017: Nuttall on results and predictions

UKIP will not be standing candidates against 'real Brexiteers' at the general election, which was "putting your country above your party", said the leader.

He told Daily Politics presenter Jo Coburn: "This is going to be a difficult election, there is no doubt about it."
