LABOUR topped the polls in Oxford at the European Parliament elections with the Conservatives triumphing in the rest of the county.
The Green Party polled second place in the city with the UK Independence Party coming second in the county’s four other districts.
Oxford’s allegiance switched from the 2009 election, which saw the Greens in top position and Labour in second.
Labour this time got 13,015 votes followed by the Greens on 8,337, the Tories on 5,997, the Liberal Democrats on 5,332 and UKIP on 4,979.
The Conservatives came top in West Oxfordshire, South Oxfordshire, Vale of White Horse and Cherwell, followed by UKIP.
In West Oxfordshire, where David Cameron is the MP, the Tories polled 11,851 with UKIP getting 7,692.
Voters went to the polls on Thursday to select 10 MEPs for the South East and results were announced late on Sunday night.
The Conservatives went from four in the last poll in 2009 to three; Labour and the Greens held their only seat while UKIP went from two to four, including party leader Nigel Farage.
The Liberal Democrats held their only UK seat with Oxford’s Catherine Bearder, as it lost nine other UK MEPs.
She said: “It was a disappointing night and a bad result for the party but we knew that this election would be difficult.”
The Lib Dems' Sharon Bowles and the Tories' James Elles both stood down at the election and did not stand as candidates. Fellow party members Nirj Deva, Daniel Hannan and Richard Ashworth retained their posts.
Mr Farage said UKIP had “delivered just about the most extraordinary result in British politics for 100 years”.
