Mr Griffin has been an MEP for the north west of England since 2009 and today insisted he will continue as a member and run for re-election in May.

A listing at the Insolvency Service showed Mr Griffin was declared bankrupt at Welshpool and Newtown County Court yesterday.

Mr Griffin tweeted: “Being bankrupt does not prevent me being or standing as an MEP. It does free me from financial worries. A good day!

“Party funds are not affected in any way. Our campaign in May will be our most professional yet and I will be lead candidate in the North West.

“I am now turning the experience to the benefit of hard-up constituents by producing a booklet on dealing with debt. No surrender.”

Mr Griffin will be automatically discharged from bankruptcy in one year, on January 2 2015, in accordance with the Insolvency Act.
