Diane James quits as Ukip leader after 18 days

Twitter has been alive this evening with rumours that Diane James has resigned as leader of Ukip.

Those rumours appear to be true, with the most authoritative report coming from Owen Bennett on Huffington Post, which adds this telling detail:
Yesterday, the Electoral Commission confirmed to HuffPost UK it had not received the paperwork from Ukip confirming James was the party’s new leader. 
A spokesperson said: “We have been in contact with UKIP and are expecting the party’s leadership change to be confirmed shortly.”
