As campaigning in the European Referendum reaches its climax a Brexit-promoting coach tour arrived in Wigan town centre on a whistlestop tour.

But, unable to find anywhere to park, UKIP’s vivid 45ft long ‘Project Fact’ vehicle had to drop off deputy leader Paul Nuttall and supporters to take their message into Market Place.

A higher number of political figures have been to Wigan than are usually seen before general elections because the electorate appears not to be dividing along traditional party lines in what is a Labour stronghold.

Former Labour leader Ed Miliband was also a recent visitor, supporting the Remain campaign.

Mr Nuttall said: “This tour will send out a bold and strong message to Project Fear and the Remain camp – that the wheels are coming off their faltering campaign.”
