US primary results: West Virginia and Nebraska

The US presidential nomination race heads to West Virginia on Tuesday (May 10) for both Republican and Democratic primaries, and Nebraska for the Republicans.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump currently stands with 1,021 delegates, which is still 217 delegates short of the 1,237 needed to win the nomination. For the Democrats, Mrs Hillary Clinton has 1,701 delegates, putting her 290 delegates ahead of  Bernie Sanders' 1,411.  Although this margin seems small, 511 of the 714 superdelegates, who have yet to pledge, have endorsed Mrs Clinton which would put her just 159 delegates short of the 2,383 needed to win the nomination.

Here are the results:
