Anti-Brexit campaigners from the Led By Donkeys group are squatting on the website address for Nigel Farage's new party.
Farage failed to register thebrexitparty.com domain name, so quick-thinking activists have taken it over as the home for the No Brexit Party.
Campaigner group Led By Donkeys posted the takeover on Twitter with the message: 'Big day ahead for Nigel Farage and his new Brexit Party as he launches his European election campaign.
'Shame he forgot to register the website.'
The page now has a banner message saying 'Nigel Farage Doesn't Represent Britain' and a message blaming him for the Brexit crisis and urging people to register to vote against him.

The page says: 'Nigel Farage wants to register a huge victory in the European elections, but he can't even register his own website.
'Seven times he's failed to get elected to Westminster. But he did get himself a seat in the European Parliament because at the time hardly any of us cared. Well we do now.
