Labour retreat as UKIP and Plaid make gains in Welsh elections

Labour has fallen short of a majority in the Welsh Assembly as UKIP won its first seats in the Senedd.

Former Tory MPs Neil Hamilton and Mark Reckless were among seven UKIP AMs elected via the regional lists.

Labour remains the largest party with 29 of the 60 seats in Cardiff Bay, and suffered the shock loss of Leighton Andrews to Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood in Rhondda.

Plaid won 12 seats, the Conservatives 11, and the Liberal Democrats one.
