Wales UKIP Leader Nathan Gill

UKIP leapfrogged the Lib Dems and Plaid Cymru to become the third biggest party in Wales based on the percentage of votes cast.

Despite not winning a seat in Wales and only keeping one of their two seats in England, the party's Welsh leader Nathan Gill was positive.

UKIP hugely increased their share of the vote in a number of areas including traditionally Labour supporting constituencies like Caerphilly, Islwyn, Cynon Valley, Merthyr Tydfil & Rhymney, Torfaen and Blaenau Gwent.

Sam Gould who was the party's best performing candidate taking almost 20% of the vote in Caerphilly has already announced his intention to run in the Assembly elections next May.
