Former Tory MP Neil Hamilton on UKIP campaign trail
12:00pm Tuesday 12th February 2013 in News
He was supporting Diane James who this morning announced her intention to win the seat.
Mr Hamilton said he believed the party had a real chance in the borough as this had been "by far the buzziest" launch he had seen in recent by-election battles.
He served as Tory MP for Tatton until 1997 and along with his wife Christine became a TV personality.
