Mirror: Nigel Farage spokesperson admits claim '5,000 jihadi fighters have come to the EU' isn't true

Mirror: Nigel Farage spokesperson admits claim '5,000 jihadi fighters have come to the EU' isn't true

He said: "I am happy to advise Mr Farage that the 5000 figure is a misinterpretation, but even Mr Wainwright will accept a figure nearing 2000.

"Nearly 2000 trained, battle experienced jihadi fighters within the borders of the EU is nothing to be complacent about, given the appalling horrors that a small handful have wrecked upon Paris and Brussels in recent months."

The spokesperson said he would tell Mr Farage not to use the statement in future.
