Nigel Farage has visited Workington to talk about his hopes for Britain's future.

The Brexit Party leader was greeted with a standing ovation as he entered the Washington Central Hotel in Workington this morning.

New Workington candidate David Walker was by his side, and promised to "put the work back into Workington".

Mr Farage said the term "Workington man", coined by a think-tank as the voter for parties to target, was patronising. 

He added: "I think it's patronising, and it's a load of rubbish."

He also encouraged his supporters to vote for his party, saying he will bring democracy back to the UK.

The former UKIP leader will continue his tour of Cumbria, making his way to Whitehaven this afternoon with a trip to Carlisle this evening.
