Nigel Farage has been booed in the European parliament after he insulted fellow MEPs in an extraordinary exchange in the wake of the Brexit vote.
Any hopes of the Ukip leader adopting a more conciliatory tone before the difficult negotiations that lie ahead were dashed by his belligerent speech to a highly charged emergency session of the parliament in Brussels on Tuesday.
As Farage goaded his fellow MEPs, the feeling of antipathy appeared mutual during rowdy proceedings in which his chief defender was the far-right French politician Marine Le Pen.
