Following Mr Lowe’s withdrawal Mr Farage cancelled an appearance in Dudley.

Mr Farage accused Mr Lowe, who is a sitting Brexit Party MEP, of “disgusting” behavior in pulling out as a candidate at the 11 th hour.

“It was disgusting behavior,” Mr Farage said. “What he probably hasn’t told you is that he met a senior official from Number 10 in the middle of last week, somebody quite close to Boris, and this was obviously stitched up.

“If he made a decision, he went and changed course, he’s entitled to. But to let everybody else down at the eleventh hour, dreadful behavior – shocking. “

Asked for his message for party supporters in Dudley North, Mr Farage added:” I’m sorry – we have been double-crossed, let down badly by a man who has behaved dishonestly. I’m sorry, that’s all I can say. “
