BNP's first MEP attacks EU


The British National Party has won a seat in the European Parliament for the first time in its history after it received 120,139 votes in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

Andrew Brons will be the far-right party's first MEP. In his acceptance speech he hit out at Gordon Brown and said his election was the first step towards the UK gaining "freedom from the European Union dictatorship".
