A ROW has erupted after it emerged that a Leeds UKIP candidate had liked Nazi war criminals on his Facebook page.

John Withill, who is standing as a UKIP candidate in the Armley ward of Leeds, created a section on his public Facebook page listing a collection of ‘inspirational people’.

The move has attracted condemnation from anti-fascist campaigners.
