Brexit backer Banks visits Bermuda

Arron Banks, the British businessman best known for bankrolling the campaign for the UK to leave the European Union, is back on the island.

The Brexit donor posted a picture today on Twitter announcing he was here on a fishing trip.

The trip comes just as Mr Banks has been referred to the National Crime Agency in the UK over allegations of “impermissible sources” of funds used in the 2016 referendum.

At the recommendation of the Electoral Commission, Mr Banks is being investigated along with his Leave.EU campaign.

Mr Banks visited the island in July with Nigel Farage, former leader of the UK Independence Party, along with Andy Wigmore, another prominent figure in the Brexit movement.
