Nigel Farage has led his fellow UKIP MEPs in a protest against the European Parliament at the opening of its new session in Strasbourg.

The UKIP MEPs turned their backs as an orchestra played Beethoven's Ode to Joy, the EU's unofficial anthem.

Most of the party's 24 MEPs - the biggest delegation to the Parliament from the UK - are believed to have taken part in the protest.
