Henrik Overgaard-Nielsen, who is one of the party’s three representatives for the North West, was due to hold tonight's meeting at the Swan and Railway pub, on Wallgate.

But pub bosses have said the event can no longer be held there and organisers have had to find an alternative location.

Landlady Michelle Nicole Wright said: "We were aware we had a meeting but was not aware this was a public meeting. We were told this was a private meeting of MPs.
