European elections 2014

  • Nigel Farage claimed to have pulled off the "most extraordinary result in British politics for 100 years" as Ukip surged to the top of the European Parliament elections.

    David Cameron blamed "deep disillusionment" with the EU for Ukip's stunning poll victory - but again dismissed the prospect of an electoral pact with the party.

    • The Liberal Democrats were the night's biggest losers as Nick Clegg paid the price for his gamble to position the party as the natural opponents to Ukip's Euroscepticism.

    Labour secured second place in the national contest with a strong performance in London, but failed to break through in key battlegrounds just 12 months before the general election.
