Partial results have shown, Angela Merkel's ruling CDU party has been beaten into 3rd place by an anti-immigrant and anti-Islam party in elections in a north-eastern German state.

The Alternative fuer Deutschland party took about 21% of the vote behind the centre-left SPD's 30%.

The German chancellor's CDU was backed by only about 19% of those who voted.

The vote was seen as a key test before German parliamentary elections in 2017.
