UKIP’s Nigel Farage stood alongside Northern Ireland party colleague David McNarry to toast his visit to the Province yesterday - but they had to rearrange the venue for their photocall.

Mr Farage, for whom photo-opportunities featuring him with a beer have become something of a trademark, sank his pint of Murphy’s in the Europa Hotel as party candidates and photographers looked on.

But he had originally been scheduled to pose in the Crown Bar opposite.

A party official said there had been a problem with the pub’s management letting them take photographs, so instead they had relocated across the road to the considerably less famous surroundings of the hotel’s first floor bar.
