Nigel Farage on the campaign trail through Thanet and spotted in Broadstairs in recent days

Ukip leader Nigel Farage has been canvassing in Broadstairs this afternoon and throughout the week.

After launching the latest part of the south Thanet election campaign where Mr Farage pledged to regenerate Manston airport, he is back touring the coastal towns.

Followed around by camera crews and posing for an occasional "selfie" with the public, he has been speaking to voters on Broadstairs seafront in the run up to the May 7 election.

His presence in Thanet comes just days after the Conservatives launched their "Where's Nigel?" campaign to exploit the claims Mr Farage is not campaigning in the constituency.

The website was started by South Thanet's Tory candidate Craig Mackinlay, who said Mr Farage was "using local people for his own publicity".

The "Where is Nigel?" website can be found here: www.whereisnigel.com
