Dutch elections: Left-wing party gaining ground

The rise of the far-right leader Geert Wilders in the Dutch elections has put the traditional liberal opposition in the Netherlands in a tailspin.

Its success is being seen as evidence that new parties are finding ways of taking on the far-right across Europe.
