US Republicans celebrate win after win

US Republicans have regained control of the House of Representatives, after the biggest switch of seats in the House for more than 70 years.

The Democrats suffered heavy losses but managed to retain overall control of the Senate.

The results are being seen as an expression of voters' concerns about the US economy.
