UKIP’s battle bus is heading to Kidderminster today (Thursday, June 16) as local politicians campaign for Britain to leave the European Union.

Paul Nuttall, deputy leader of UKIP, will bring the 45-foot ‘Project Fact’ coach from Worcester at 4.45pm as part of a seven-day tour of the Midlands, Wales and North West.

James Carver, MEP for West Midlands, Councillor Paul Brothwood, party leader on Dudley Council, Bill Etheridge, MEP for West Midlands, and Berenice Dawes will be on the bus.

The tour began in Newport at 9am, before arriving in Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye, and Ledbury.

Kidderminster is one of 49 locations that will be visited by the bus between Thursday and next Wednesday (June 22), ahead of the European Referendum vote on June 23.
