UKIP leader Nigel Farage has hailed early gains in council elections across England as "remarkable" for the party.

UKIP has won 42 seats so far and is averaging 25% of the vote in the wards where it is standing.

Mr Farage said it put his party in a "very strong position" in the run-up to the next general election.
