Election Results 2017: Tories 'To Fall Short Of Majority'

The Conservatives are on course to be the largest party but may not have an overall majority, according to the latest BBC general election forecast. Theresa May faces the humiliation of ending with fewer seats than when she called the election. The Tories are projected to get 316 seats, Labour 265 and the SNP 32.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called on Theresa May to go - but she said the country needed stability and her party would "ensure" it. Labour looks set to make 33 gains with the Tories losing 15 seats - and the SNP could lose 22 seats in a bad night for Nicola Sturgeon, with her party losing seats to the Tories, Labour and Lib Dems.

The Conservatives are forecast to win 43% of the vote, Labour 40%, the Lib Dems 8%, UKIP 2%, the Greens 2%, the SNP 3%, Plaid Cymru 1% and others 1%. Mr Corbyn, speaking after being re-elected in Islington North, said it was time for Mrs May to "make way" for a government that would be "truly representative of the people of this country". He said he was "very proud" of the results so far, which he said were a "vote for hope for the future" and said people were "turning their backs on austerity".
