A report suggests the Conservatives will get 364 MPs, Labour 203, the SNP 48, the Lib Dems 12, Plaid Cymru four, the Greens one, and the Brexit Party none. That means the Conservatives will get the biggest majority at Westminster since Margaret Thatcher’s 1987 election victory.
The Labour party faced its worst defeat since 1935. It lost seats across the North, Midlands and Wales in places which backed Brexit in 2016.
