UKIP leader, Paul Nuttall, has stepped down as leader of the party after they failed to win a single seat in the general election.
Nuttall has resigned with immediate effect, leaving Pete Whittle, London Assembly member as acting leader.
The UKIP vote share plummeted to 2% and the party had lost £30,000 in deposits by 3am this morning.
Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage took to Twitter after Nuttall’s announcement.
An excellent speech by @paulnuttallukip. Very sorry he is standing down.
