Ukip increased its vote share by more than any other other party in 469 constituencies across the UK.

The party may have failed to win its target constituencies, but it spread a formidable increase in vote across England and Wales.

This map shows the scale of Ukip's gains - as well as the contrast with Scotland, where the SNP cleaned up.

Each constituency is coloured for the party that increased its vote share the most in it.
