Ukip leader Nigel Farage has said that if Remain win it is because of the two million extra voters who were allowed to register late, adding defiantly: "Win or lose this battle, we will win this war, we will get this country back, we will get our independence back and we will get our borders back."

Mr Farage also appeared to row back on previous statements attributed to him suggesting he had conceded to Remain.
