UKIP: ‘We won’t go back on burka ban’

The leader of UKIP has said the party will not roll back on its proposed ban on full face coverings. Paul Nuttall defended the party’s policy, saying the ban would encourage integration.

Mr Nuttall confirmed on the Today programme he would indeed be standing in next month’s general election but refused to be drawn on where. He said UKIP were looking for “real Brexiteers” to be back in the Commons.
