A Green Party Member of European Parliament for London has been re-elected for a fourth term.

Jean Lambert, from Walthamstow, was one of the three Greens who won a seat and helped to push the Liberal Democrats into fourth place for the first time.

Ms Lambert, a former school teacher from the borough, has represented London in the European Parliament since 1999.

After winning she vowed to continue to work on making London a more environmentally friendly city.

"I am delighted and honoured that Londoners of all backgrounds have supported the Greens in this European election and voted again for a strong Green voice in the European Parliament.

“Greens will continue to put forward positive policies to tackle the growing inequalities between rich and poor, whether in London or beyond, and to continue the push to a low carbon economy, which combats climate change while creating new jobs."

Ms Lambert was elected alongside economist Dr. Molly Scott Cato, who defeated longstanding Lib Dem MEP Sir Graham Watson in the south west.

Green Party Leader, Natalie Bennett, said the party which won nearly eight percent of the vote in the country won the support of people who were “inspired” by the party’s dedication to change.
