    BBC Politics

    Paul Nuttall

    UKIP's former leader and his colleague in the London Assembly have quit the party in protest at the decision to appoint Tommy Robinson as an adviser.

    Paul Nuttall said he was leaving because the party was being taken in a direction "harmful to Brexit".

    The association with the former English Defence League leader would "appall many moderate Brexit voters," he said.

    Mr Nuttall's resignation follows that of fellow former leader Nigel Farage, who expressed similar sentiments.

    Former London mayoral candidate and serving London Assembly member Peter Whittle also announced he was quitting UKIP.
