MEPs and political groupings in the European Parliament

11 April 2014 Last updated at 11:07 BST

The European Parliament has political groupings each made up of at least 25 MEPs from across at least seven nations.

In a Politics Europe film, Adam Fleming enlisted the help of models at the parliament to look at how the MEPs line up in their own political armies for the sittings in Brussels and Strasbourg.

He explains where the British MEPs sit in the groups - whose names and acronyms are largely unknown in the UK.
