The Premier League are consulting their lawyers amid claims Ukip 'stole' their lion logo for their rebrand

Trademark clash between Premier League and UKIP ruled out

At the conference, Ukip members were reportedly saddened that the pound sign will be removed from the logo.

Their new logo has "Ukip - for the nation" printed in purple lettering with the purple lion alongside.

But UKIP were immediately accused of aping other well-known logos.

BPP adopted its shield-shaped lion head logo in 2011 as part of a business-wide rebrand.

The Premier League are consulting their lawyers amid claims Ukip "stole" their new lion logo from the division.

Lineker, who hosts Match of The Day, caught sight of the Ukip design and noted its similarity to the football league's logo.

Meanwhile, social media has erupted with people mocking Ukip for "stealing" their new logo.

"For a start, I don't mind Ukip being associated with the Premier League".

It was quickly pointed out how similar Ukip's new logo is to the Premier League lionWill the Premier League take action over the design?

"So we're perfectly comfortable with the lion we put forward and we're perfectly comfortable with the vote to adopt it by the membership".

At Ukip's party conference in Torquay, the spokesman said the lion was broadly recognised as a symbol of Britain and joked that it has been named "Flossie".

The party, who elected Henry Bolton as their new leader on Friday, revealed a fresh look at their annual conference in Torquay.

Seven candidates were hoping to replace Paul Nuttall after a disastrous eight months at the helm.

Anti Islam campaigner Anne Marie Waters is the bookies favourite to be announced Ukip leader today.

But her strident views have sparked horror among many of her party colleagues and could see the Ukip split for good.

The new leader is a former soldier and police officer who has worked in worldwide security.
