Moment Nigel Farage becomes MP for first time after winning Clacton seat

Watch the moment Nigel Farage becomes an MP for the first time after winning a seat in Clacton.

The Reform UK leader promised to do his "absolute best" after securing the seat during his eighth attempt to join parliament.

Since returning to front-line politics Mr Farage has been a thorn in the side of prime minister Rishi Sunak as his party seeks to take votes from the Conservatives.

Mr Farage faced criticism across the political spectrum during the election campaign for failing to tackle racism within the party.
