Hundreds of British workers have come forward to challenge Nigel Farage's claim that only his German wife is capable of doing the job of being his assistant, an employment agency has said.

The Ukip leader was forced to defend the decision to employ his non-UK spouse at the same time as launching a poster campaign warning that unemployed Europeans were "after" people's jobs in this country.
