The South East region ballot, held on Thursday but the results of which were only declared moments ago, resulted in UKIP securing four seats including the party leader Nigel Farage retaining his MEP role.

Of the 10 seats up for grabs, the Conservatives took three, Labour one, the Green Party one, and the Liberal Democrats one to go with UKIP's four.

UKIP polled second in Wokingham and Windsor and Maidenhead, behind the Conservatives in both areas, and came third in Reading, trailing Labour and the Conservatives .

The Green Party edged out the Lib Dems to take fourth place in Reading.

After the 2009 election, the South East was represented in the European Parliament by five Conservatives MEPs, two Liberal Democrats, one UKIP, one Labour and one Green Party.

The results also mean Berkshire-based candidates John Howarth, from Reading, James Swindlehurst, from Slough, (both Labour), Derek Wall, from Winkfield, and Miriam Kennet, from Tidmarsh, (Green Party), and Jean-Louis Pascal, from Reading (The Roman Party. AVE) all missed out on seats.
