Farage's Brexit Party wins big in UK's EU election

From Morning Report, 7:18 am on 28 May 2019

Nigel Farage's Brexit Party was the clear winner in the UK's European elections while the Conservatives and Labour suffered heavy losses.

The Brexit Party was established only weeks ago and topped the polling with 31 percent of the vote. The ruling Conservative Party scored just nine percent - its worst result in a national election since it was formed in 1834.

Nigel Farage told reporters that because of his party's share of the vote he and his team should now be part of the Brexit negotiations in Brussels.

The Telegraph's Brexit correspondent James Rothwell talks through the details with Corin Dann.
