Leave.EU co-founder Arron Banks is to be investigated by the National Crime Agency - and this was Nigel Farage's fiery response.

The LBC presenter and former Ukip leader claimed it was "perfect" timing that the investigation into alleged electoral law offences was taking place months before a critical Commons vote on Brexit.

The electoral watchdog says it has reasonable grounds to suggest a loan for his campaign group wasn't actually from him.

Mr Banks denied the allegation, describing it as "ludicrous".

Nigel said he'd had his battles with the Electoral Commission, claiming it tried to close UKIP down as a political force while ignoring donations to the Liberal Democrats.

"I've no doubt they've done this to Leave.EU," Nigel continued.

"I've no doubt, in the next few days, you'll see the same thing said about Vote Leave", Nigel continued.

"It'll be used everywhere that we have to nullify the referendum result because they may have done something wrong. I very much doubt it, but we will see".
