Although the vote took place on Thursday, it is only now we are finding out the result of this week’s EU elections.

Of course, the elections for the UK are dogged with problems – including the fact that we should have left the EU at this point, meaning these elections were not planned to be held here. Then you have the issue of the main parties – the Conservatives are going through all sorts of problems with the leadership, while Labour are having problems with the impossible task of keeping everyone happy.

Huw Edwards takes us through the night as the results come in.

European Election Results is on BBC One at 22.00.
