32% turnout in Welsh Euro vote

Just under a third (32%) of Welsh voters turned out in yesterday's European election, it's been provisionally estimated. The figure's been released by Pembrokeshire county Council, which is in charge of the count on Sunday.

It's slightly higher than the 30% who voted in the last European election five years ago but well down on the 41% turnout in 2004. A low turnout is generally thought to work against Labour, who are hoping to win a second Welsh seat.

Labour, UKIP, Plaid Cymru and the Conservatives are each defending one of Wales' four seats in the European Parliament.
