UKIP win the European Election in the East Midlands

UKIP has won the European Election in the East Midlands, which includes Northampton.

UKIP gets two seats, the Conservatives also get two and Labour were allocated 1 MEP seat.

UKIP took 33% of the vote with the Tories coming second with 26%. Labour were just behind with 25%, the Greens got 6% knocking the Liberal Democrats into fifth place with 5% of the vote.

The Liberal Democrats have lost their East Midlands seat - Bill Newton Dunn was first elected to the European Parliament in 1999.

Five of the seven MEPs for the Eastern region will be returning to the European Parliament in Brussels and Strasbourg. They will be joined by two new faces from UKIP.

UKIP won the Eastern region vote and were allocated three seats - one more than in 2009.

The Conservatives also have three MEPs - the same number they won at the last European Election.

Labour were allocated the final place. The Liberal Democrat MEP Andrew Duff lost the seat he first won in 1999.

Labour took 17.3% of the vote and got one MEP - Richard Howitt.
