UKIP Set For European Elections Success

Nigel Farage's UK Independence Party (UKIP) is on course for further success in next year's European elections, according to a new poll.

The survey found that 27% of those certain to vote in the 2014 contest would support UKIP, with Labour on 23% and the Tories on 21%.

The rise of Mr Farage's party has caused major headaches for the Conservatives, and the ComRes study for the Open Europe think tank found that almost two-fifths (39%) of those who voted Tory in 2010 would back UKIP if the European election was held now.
