Exit polls predict hung parliament

An exit poll has predicted that the Conservatives will achieve over 300 seats, but not the 326 required to form a majority. The Tories are predicted to gain 314 seats and the Labour Party to win 266.

Exit polls were conducted by Ipsos MORI for BBC, ITV and Sky News.

The most recent YouGov poll predicts the Tories winning 302 seats and Labour winning 269, resulting in a hung parliament.

The first constituencies expected to be announced are Houghton and Sunderland South as they have been the quickest for the past five elections and are expected to declare at 11pm.

The Conservative Party won 331 and Labour won 232 seats in the 2015 General Election.

When Prime Minister Theresa May called a snap election on 18 April the Conservatives had a 24 point lead and now it’s narrowed to just one point, as reported by the Telegraph.
