Voters have begun heading to the polls in the Basque Country.

Both the EH Bildu party - descending from the political wing of the terrorist group ETA - and the PNV are predicted to need backing from the Basque Socialist Party (PSE) to garner enough votes to rule in the 75-seat regional Parliament.

Around 1.8 million voters are being called to the polls to decide the result.
