🇬🇧 Hope you all voted🇬🇧Five years ago they had just one MEP, now they are celebrating their best-ever performance in a European election.
The EU election results
Almost three years on from the EU referendum, the results from an election made necessary by the delay to Britain's exit show that the country remains deeply divided on the issue.
Nigel Farage's party, which was formed just six weeks ago, won 10 of the UK's 11 regions, gaining 29 seats, including one in Scotland, and more than 30% of the vote. Only Northern Ireland is yet to fully declare.
The Lib Dems finished second in England and Wales after winning 16 seats.
Labour won 10 (down from 20 in 2014), the Greens had seven (up from three in 2014) and the Conservatives slumped to four (compared with 19 last time). After topping the polls under the leadership of Mr Farage five years ago, UKIP lost all 23 of its MEPs and saw its share of the vote drop by more than 25%. The two main political parties suffered as voters split between the clear alternatives offered by Mr Farage and the pro-EU Lib Dems.
Turnout was 36.7%, up 1.8% from 2014.
On a disastrous night for the Tories, the party finished fifth and is on course for its worst ever national election share once all the results have been announced.
The abject performance is likely to spark further internal debate about the party's future direction and handling of Brexit.
For Labour, the party's poor showing has already reignited debate about its policy on a second referendum.
