The Mike Read Ukip Calypso has been banned by Mike Read

The Ukip Calypso, a song Nigel Farage wanted to get to number one, is to be withdrawn from sale by the man behind it.

Former Radio 1 DJ Mike Read today said sorry for "unintentionally causing offence" with the song, which he performed in a mock Caribbean accent.

I'm so sorry that the song unintentionally caused offence. That was never my intention and I apologise unreservedly if anyone has taken offence.

I've asked the record company to withdraw the single immediately.
