A CONTROVERSIAL public meeting urging Wiganers to reject Ukip in the upcoming elections has been cancelled.

Stand Up To Ukip had been due to hold an event at Sunshine House Community Centre in Scholes this evening (Wednesday).

However, the Bradshawgate venue confirmed it was never consulted about putting on such an event and has pulled the plug, saying it would not have allowed the meeting had it been aware of it.

The meeting had already provoked an angry backlash from Wigan Ukip, which accused Stand Up To Ukip of misrepresenting Nigel Farage’s party and its members.
