The UK Independence Party has topped the European elections poll in the East Midlands to claim two of the five regional seats up for grabs.

Roger Helmer, who defected from the Conservatives mid-term, and Margot Parker will represent the region for UKIP in Brussels and Strasbourg after the party polled 368,734 votes, a 32.9 per cent overall share.

The Conservative Party also won two seats after claiming 291,270 votes, with Emma McClarkin retaining her MEP status and being joined by former Derbyshire County Council leader Andrew Lewer.
