Nigel Farage claimed victory tonight as Ukip appeared on track to top the European Parliament polls, declaring the result was an “earthquake” in British politics.

He said: “Ukip is going to win this election and yes that will be an earthquake because never before in the history of British politics has a party that will be seen to be an insurgent party ever topped the polls in a national election.”

The other three main parties have conceded Ukip will win the election, after the first results were announced.
