Ukip: A timeline of the party's turbulent history

He's a former soldier who used to be in the Lib Dems. Mr Bolton was seen as the favoured candidate of Nigel Farage, the party's former leader and most popular figure, who was rumoured to be planning to form a new party if Anne Marie Waters, the anti-Islam campaigner, won.

Following Bolton's election as leader, Nigel Farage tweeted: "I am delighted @_HenryBolton has won the UKIP leadership election".

Britain's UK Independence Party on Friday elected former army officer Henry Bolton as its new leader, the third elected since Nigel Farage resigned from the party after last year's Brexit referendum.

UKIP's support evaporated in the election in June, losing its only member of parliament who had already abandoned the party, and taking just 594,068 votes, only 1.8 per cent of the total cast.

He has said he will have conversations with Ms Waters, Mr Farage and Mr Banks about their futures with the party.

The result of the party's leadership election will be announced today at around 5pm at the Ukip conference in Torquay.

"This party needs to serve its country". His website says he has acted in a number of security and border management roles including being head of global police in Central Croatia and head of the European Union crisis response team in Ukraine.

At the time the local Surrey newspaper described Bolton as being "concerned about negative campaigning on immigration".

"Without being united, we can not lead", Bolton said.

Mr Bolton said he believes in "old-fashioned, classical liberalism", but feels it has "lost its way a bit".

"I think that will grow as a natural outcome of the devolution settlement".

Britain and the European Union are now negotiating the terms of Britain's departure. It's about 'What is the problem here?' It's about full face covering.

But he said the party needed to focus on wider issues.

He added that his own personal opinion is if anything is making it hard to identify an individual on the streets, it is "something that we need to address".
