The ousted former leader of the UK Independence Party, Henry Bolton, says he is setting up a new political party.
Mr Bolton, who was voted out last month at a meeting of UKIP members, said his new party would “campaign unceasingly for our full independence from the EU”.
He said “there is an urgent need for a new way of doing politics that truly involves communities”.
The OneNation party’s structures and management “mirror some of the changes that I sought to bring to UKIP”.
UKIP members voted to sack Mr Bolton as leader last month at an emergency general meeting after controversy over racist messages sent by his partner.
