Text size Aa Aa

The UK Independence Party has lost its only MP.

Douglas Carswell has announced he is leaving the party.

The 46-year-old defected to UKIP in August 2014 from the Conservative Party.

The British populist party is widely credited as having been a major factor behind the country’s decision to leave the European Union.
