26 May 2014 Last updated at 08:04 BST

The support for UKIP in the European elections was not a vote on the EU's popularity, according to Labour's Chuka Umunna.

The shadow business secretary said that it was a vote against the political establishment and austerity, and that coming second in the poll was "really good" for Labour.

UKIP secured around 27% of the vote, with Labour on 25% narrowly beating the Tories to second place.
