UKIP national executive member Elizabeth Jones has backed the party's new leader Paul Nuttall as he's "proven his commitment to the party."

Nuttall was elected UKIP's new leader yesterday, succeeding the party's long-time figurehead Nigel Farage, who had been in charge on an interim basis following the resignation of Diane James last month.

The new leader said he plans to unify his party in order to hold the Government to account over Brexit and win over Labour voters disillusioned with Jeremy Corbyn.

Jones told talkRADIO's morning host Paul Ross that Nuttall has "paid his dues" and "shown his proven commitment to the party. 

"He's been in the party a very long time. I think he'll do fine. 

"We have a whole series of policies which will be attractive to the public, and we'll just have to see how it rolls out with our new leader."
