Farage pulls out of live TV debate for 'family reasons'


Nigel Farage has pulled out of Channel 4's live EU referendum debate.

A spokesman for the Ukip leader said he would not be taking part because of "family reasons".

The leading Leave campaigner was due to take part in the TV debate on the eve of the referendum along with dozens of other campaigners from each side.

A spokesman for the broadcaster said Mr Farage pulled out around 2pm and the line up has since been reshuffled.
