Titford: 'UKIP will win Westminster seat'

Ukip will eventually win a Westminster seat, its interim leader Jeffrey Titford predicted today as the party's annual conference got under way.

Mr Titford - who took over the reins after the resignation of Lord Pearson - said his party is drawing support from a wide political spectrum, not just disaffected Conservatives.

Asked on BBC Radio 4's Today programme about Ukip's parliamentary prospects, Mr Titford said: "We will get there in the end, don't you worry.

"I think we draw from all areas of the political spectrum. Three of our policies have been taken up by the three political parties, so it must be we are getting something right in our manifesto."

The party is holding its annual conference in Torquay, ending tomorrow.
