UKIP braced for new leader as Gerard Batten resigns.
UKIP has announced that leader Gerard Batten has resigned. He is standing down after the party lost all its MEPs in the European Elections at the end of May. A leadership contest will be launched imminently and the winner unveiled on 10 August. UKIP said the move fulfils a promise Mr Batten made to step down around a year after being elected unopposed. Party chair Kirstan Herriot said it was "incredibly grateful" for his "dedicated service". The former London MEP teed himself up to resign last month in an exclusive interview with Sky News.
