Pro-Europe parties lead in Dutch vote

Voters in the Netherlands have backed two pro-European centrist parties, while the Eurosceptic, anti-immigrant Freedom Party faces heavy losses.
With most votes counted, PM Mark Rutte claimed victory for his centre-right VVD party. The centre-left Labour Party looks set to come a close second.
Both parties are set to take even more seats than opinion polls had suggested.
