Nigel Farage says he will not be standing in the General Election

Nigel Farage will not be standing as a candidate at the General Election.

The Brexit Party leader said he believes he can better serve the cause by "traversing the length and breadth" of the UK campaigning, instead of fighting to get elected in one constituency.

He has previously lost on seven occasions when bidding to become an MP.
