UKIP won its first parliamentary seat in Scotland after a knife-edge European election contest.

Nigel Farage’s party picked up 10.4 per cent of the vote, giving them the sixth and final seat available north of the border.

It caps a remarkable European election for Ukip, which saw it stretch ahead of Labour and the Conservatives with the highest share of the vote across Britain as a whole.

In Scotland, the SNP and Labour remain on two seats each while the Tories keep their single seat.
