The Brexit Party led by former UKIP leader Nigel Farage is projected to receive 31.6% of the vote and win the European Parliament elections. Pro-Remain parties, the Liberal Democrats, Greens, and the UK Change Party were also projected to gain a similar share

 

Labour was expected to come second with 19.1% but with the Lib-Dems just 0.2% behind. The Conservatives are third according to this poll with 12.4% and the Greens have 9.8%. 

Britain Elects published its forecast and is updating it.
