Eurosceptic 'earthquake' rocks EU elections

Eurosceptic and far-right parties have seized ground in elections to the European parliament, in what France's PM called a "political earthquake".
While the French National Front and UK Independence Party both headed for first place, the three big centrist blocs in parliament all lost seats.
The outcome means a greater say for those who want to cut back the EU's powers, or abolish it completely.
But EU supporters will be pleased that election turnout was slightly higher.
