UKIP leader Nigel Farage on pronouncing surname

Nigel Farage's name was raised at prime minister's questions, when David Cameron accused Mr Farage of saying it in a "poncey, foreign-sounding" way.

After watching that clip, Daily Politics presenter Andrew Neil got advice from Dr Catherine Sangster, the head of pronunciations for the Oxford English Dictionary.

And the MEP himself revealed the name came from the French-Luxembourg border area, adding that he finds the pronunciation - like the word garage - varies in different parts of the UK.
