Nigel Farage has slammed high profile Brits who are “under the influence of China” after it was revealed by a watchdog that more than a third of Britain’s police force use equipment provided by firms with links to the country.

Serious questions have been raised after it was discovered that CCTV, drones and other technology being used by the British Police Force, were supplied by firms with strong links to China.

The biometrics and surveillance camera commissioner Fraser Sampson compared it to “digital asbestos” because they were installed with good intentions by a previous generation.

Speaking to The Times, he said: “Now we know they bring significant risk, we should probably stop installing any more until we understand the depth and breadth of those risks,

“And then we should set up a timeline for assessment and, if appropriate, removal or replacement.”

One Chinese firm who has been blacklisted by the US Government over security fears has been accused of stealing “trade secrets” from tech giant Motorola.

Reacting to the news, GB News’ Nigel Farage said: “China's influence is everywhere. We thought we'd learnt the lesson. Boris Johnson, of course, wanted Huawei to have a big part of our 5G system.

“He was then persuaded that was not a good idea.

“But, we learned today that many of our police forces are using Chinese surveillance equipment. All the companies that produce that stuff effectively work for the Chinese Communist Party.

“I’m quite shocked actually, to see that. Even our nuclear police force, those that look after our nuclear installations, even they are using Chinese surveillance equipment from firms linked to the state.

“We need to cut this link with China as quickly as we can. Sadly, too many in high office and high places in Britain are under the influence of China. I'm sure money has got nothing to do with it.”
