It added Mr Nuttall cited the killers of soldier Lee Rigby and Moors murderer Ian Brady when adding: “For people who kill a (British) soldier and harm children, I would not have a problem doing it. I believe in capital punishment for treason. Opinion polls show the vast majority of people agree with me.”

Mr Nuttall said his support for capital punishment is not official Ukip policy.

Mr Nuttall also defended Ukip’s manifesto for attempting to justify calls to ban the burka and niqab as the face-covering veils “prevent intake of essential vitamin D from sunlight”.

He told ITV’s Peston On Sunday: “There’s a myriad of medical research which shows if you don’t show your face or the rest of your body to the sun there will be vitamin D deficiencies.”

Told that is not why he wanted to ban the burka, Mr Nuttall added: “That’s peripheral.”
