Nigel Farage blasts 'anti-English' protesters


UKIP leader Nigel Farage has hit back at protesters who besieged him in an Edinburgh pub.

Mr Farage said the anger was linked to a desire for the Union Jack to be burnt.

He also told Good Morning Scotland's David Miller that UKIP had set its sights on Scottish success.

But the UKIP leader later hung up saying the interview was "was insulting and unpleasant".

A spokesperson for BBC Scotland said: "The BBC stands by the interview, which was robust but fair."
