BREXIT figure Nigel Farage has arrived in Bolton for a major rally.

The former Ukip leader was surrounded by media as he arrived in the town on the political pressure group's campaign bus this morning.

So far today, he has visited Westhoughton Market and paid a visit to members of the public at The Robert Shaw in Market Street.

Mr Farage will appear as a guest speaker at a major Brexit rally at the University of Bolton stadium this afternoon.

The event, organised by the Leave Means Leave campaign, aims to appeal to those who oppose Prime Minister Theresa May’s latest Brexit plans.
