Scotland has returned six MEPs to Brussels

Meet Scotland’s newly elected MEPs... and a few candidates who didn’t make it

Scotland returned a total of six MEPs to Brussels. But who made the cut north of the Border - and who missed out?

The Brexit party managed to repeat the success of UKIP at the last Euro elections in 2014 by returning one MEP in Scotland. Louis Stedman-Bryce, from Argyll, topped the party's list north of the Border
