The UK’s European elections 2019

Gains for The Brexit Party and Lib Dems

With all the overnight results now in, it's been another bad election for both Labour and the Conservatives.

Both parties have lost MEPs to The Brexit Party and the Liberal Democrats, and the Green Party are ahead of the Tories overall.

Northern Ireland starts counting later and Scotland is expected to announce their MEPs before midday.

      Closing summary

      We are closing our international live coverage of the European elections for the night. You can continue to follow UK results and reaction here.

      Here are the the day's main developments:

      • The big power blocs of the centre-right and centre-left lost their combined majority in the European Parliament. "The monopoly of power is broken," said Denmark's Margrethe Vestager, the liberal candidate for the top post in the European Commission
      • Europeans voted in their biggest numbers since 1994, bucking years of decline with a turnout just shy of 51%
      • The big winners of the night were the liberals and Greens. The liberals have were boosted by the decision of President Macron's ruling party to join them
      • The Greens saw strong votes in Finland, Germany, France and Portugal
      • The nationalist right had a patchy night, but enjoyed successes in Italy, where figurehead Matteo Salvini ran to victory, and in France, where Marine Le Pen defeated the Renaissance alliance of Mr Macron.
      • In the UK, the newly-formed Brexit Party soared to victory, gaining 28 seats amid massive losses for Conservatives and Labour
      • There are still results to be announced, alliances to forge, and perhaps some domestic political fallout for parties across the continent
      • BBC journalists will be covering the story from both UK and international angles - stay tuned for developments throughout the day
      • To catch up, take a look at what we know so far about the outlook across Europe
