Voters in UK constituencies could find themselves casting their ballot in a caravan, windmill or used car centre.

Voters are heading to the polls across the UK for the European Parliament elections, and certain polling stations for this election are a little different.

Constituents have been casting their ballots at locations including a caravan, a pub and even a windmill.

Polling stations will be open until 10pm on Thursday, with voters casting ballots for a total of 73 MEPs in nine constituencies in England, and one each in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

When Britain leaves the European Union on October 31, the European Parliament will reduce from 751 MEPs to 705, with 27 of the UK’s 73 seats being distributed among the remaining member states.

It is uncertain how long British MEPs will sit in the parliament due to Brexit.
