UKIP Leader Gerard Batten says his party faces “difficult” local elections in England but hopes to retain seats.

The party gained 161 councillors four years ago, but is fielding 75% fewer candidates this year after a series of problems.

But Mr Batten, the fourth person to lead UKIP in 19 months, said; “We are confident we can retain our seats and also win a few more.”
