Nigel Farage has unveiled the Brexit Party's general election policies, promising a "political revolution that puts ordinary people first".

The party leader pledged to halve the foreign aid budget, abolish the House of Lords and cap permanent immigration at 50,000 a year.

The Brexit Party is running in 275 seats, after deciding to stand down in the 317 won by the Tories in 2017.

It is also promising a "clean break" from all EU institutions.

Speaking in London, Mr Farage said his party would scrap VAT on fuel bills and stop companies earning less than 10,000 a year paying corporation tax.

He promised millions of trees would be planted to absorb carbon emissions.

Mr Farage said his party would save tens of billions of pounds by redirecting foreign aid, scrapping the HS2 rail project and stopping the UK's contributions to the EU.

He also claimed the party could recover 7bn from the UK's share of capital at the European Investment Bank.

Mr Farage said he favoured making civil servants sign a "pledge of political neutrality" and devising "political guidelines" for the Supreme Court.

He added that any Brexit Party MPs elected would "hold Boris Johnson to his word" over Brexit, and act as "new radicals" in Parliament to "change politics for good".
