Sinn Fein tops Northern Ireland poll

By staff

Sinn Fein has topped the poll in the Northern Ireland European parliamentary elections, marking the final set of results to come in.

Bairbre de Brun has now been elected to represent the region.

Ulster Unionist Jim Nicholson was also elected.

But the Democratic Unionist party (DUP) suffered a humiliating setback, having come top of the poll during the last election.

They are now battling the Social Democratic and Labour party (SDLP) for the final seat.
