    Mr Farage highlighted women’s safety as an issue for voters to consider in what he called the “nuclear bomb” of the referendum campaign.

    He said: ”The nuclear bomb this time would be about Cologne.”

    In January, reports emerged of allegations that hundreds of women were groped, robbed and intimidated at the German city's central station on New Year's Eve.

    Mr Farage added: ”There are some very big cultural issues.”

    Asked whether mass sex attacks like those in Cologne could occur in the UK, he said: "It depends if they get EU passports.

    “It depends if we vote for Brexit or not.

    Except for the fact that we aren't a part of the Schengen free movement zone, so everyone coming into the UK needs to go through standard border controls. Lies and scaremongering, from Nigel Farage? Shocker!

    My ignorance? Can you please inform me how these millions of rapists are going to get into the country? Or could you inform me how leaving the EU would prevent that, when they'd have to go through the exact same border controls they go through right now?
