Plaid: Labour rocked in Wales


Plaid Cymru's Adam Price has described the results of the European elections in Wales as an "earthquake", saying that Labour "is imploding".

It is the first time since 1922 that Labour has not come first in a Welsh election, as its vote dropped by 12%.

Labour, the Conservatives and Plaid Cymru won a seat each, as did UKIP, which will send its first Welsh MEP to Brussels.
