UKIP candidate Nigel Farage had a miracle escape today after he was pulled from the wreckage of a horrific plane crash as he was campaigning.
The light aircraft plunged to the ground during an election stunt after a ‘Vote for your country – Vote Ukip’ banner streaming behind it apparently became tangled in the tail fin.
It then crashed to the ground, landing upside down with the front section completely smashed in.
The 46-year-old former party leader’s curled up body still lay in his seat, wrapped in the wreckage, when rescuers reached the field where he and the pilot had crashed.
