Keith Taylor, the Green Party MEP for South East England, has been re-elected to the European parliament. The Green Party beat the Liberal Democrats into last place.
Mr Taylor said:
"I am honour to have been re-elected as an MEP for South East England. At this election Greens offered voters hope, whilst others peddled fear and division.
"As an MEP for South East England I will stand up for my constituents, wherever they come from and however they choose to live their lives. It's my honour to be back in Brussels working to make the EU more democratic and less dominated by big business."
The result came on a night which also saw the Greens in the South East gain three new council seats in local elections and which witnessed very strong shares of the vote in areas such as Oxford and Brighton & Hove.
