UKIP gain 5 seats on the Welsh Assembly with three of five regions declared

With 51 of 60 seats declared, UKIP has gained 5 seats on the Welsh Assembly.

Nigel Farage predicted that UKIP would take 5 Welsh seats but it looks like he may have underestimated with at least one or two more seats expected once the final nine seats have been counted.

Wales rejected the trade union's campaign of fear and hate run by their "Hope not Hate" campaign and backed UKIP in big numbers.

Counting is still taking place in the Central and Mid & West Wales regions but UKIP has topped the regional list for North Wales and South Wales East.

North Wales212.5%
South Wales East217.8%
South Wales West113.7%
