The UKIP candidate who will challenge South West Herts MP David Gauke during next year’s general election has welcomed Douglas Carswell’s defection to his party.

It was announced yesterday that the famously Eurosceptic Mr Carswell would be stepping down as a Tory MP for Clacton and standing for the seat again in a by-election.

He will represent UKIP when the poll takes place after being welcomed to the party with open arms by its charismatic leader Nigel Farage.
