But the ruling coalition between the Social Democrats and the centrist Radical Party held onto all their seats.

Anti-EU parties polled strongly with the Danish People's Party joining the ranks of other Danish anti-EU groups in the parliament, although they are likely co-operate with each other.

Four of Denmark's 16 members of the parliament are now opposed to the European Union.

The Conservatives were reduced to just one seat after losing two.
