UKIP U-Turn Over Tory MP Splash! Protest.

UKIP have today sensationally back-tracked from staging a protest at the leisure pool holding the ITV Splash! Contest, TBG can reveal.

Earlier this week a source told TBG that UKIP were planning the protest after anger from locals denied entry to their "community" swimming pool and concern at an MP going on reality television.

However, after a tidal wave of support for the MP in question it seems as though our source has gone to ground and TBG has even heard from a UKIP regional press to categorically deny any party connection to the planned protest.

"I wish to make it clear that the protest, if it goes ahead, has not been officially sanctioned or organised by UKIP either regionally or nationally" - said a UKIP regional spokesperson.
