UKIP leader Nigel Farage was one of four members of his party to be elected as a Member of the European Parliament for the South East region last night (Sunday).

Although people on the Isle of Wight went to the polls on Thursday, the results of the count did not take place until last night (Sunday).

The Isle of Wight is part of the South East region, which is represented by ten MEPs. They will sit in the European Parliament, the legislative body of the European Union.

Following this result, UKIP now has the most representatives for the region, four, while the Conservatives have three. Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party each have one.
