Nigel Farage has praised Keir Starmer's immigration policy and claimed it resembles Ukip's own manifesto.

Mr Farage said Labour was now "to the right of the Conservatives on immigration" after Sir Keir said Britain needed to end its "immigration dependency".

The Labour leader addressed business chiefs in a speech on Tuesday morning and criticised the use of "cheap labour".
