Brexit party leader Nigel Farage travelled more than 100 miles from his home in Kent to record a video rant about migrants during lockdown.

Farage’s spokesman claims he was acting as a broadcaster, who is entitled to key worker status if they are providing public service information.

According to reports, Farage travelled from his home in Kent to a Pett Level, a south coast beach, before driving to Hastings where he interviewed members of the public.

The video was later emailed out to supporters under the title “the media aren’t reporting this.”

The former MEP’s spokesman said the interviews were later used on LBC Radio.

When asked if the journey was an essential one, his spokesman simply replied “I have told you the justification”.

Britian’s lockdown measures state the public can only leave their homes to go shopping for food and medicine, exercise once a day, medical trips or caring for others and essential work.
