Labour are expected to secure a landslide victory to take over Downing Street in the UK's General Election, as exit polls show voters showing faith in Sir Keir Starmer's party.

Contrastingly, Rishi Sunak's short tenure as Prime Minister looks set to end in disaster, with the Tories expected to endure heavy losses following a 14-year reign resulting in high levels of inflation and a cost of living crisis. It's a dramatic turnaround since the last election of 2019 - when Boris Johnson secured an 80-seat majority while Jeremy Corbyn led Labour to its worst result since 1935.

But this evening's exit polls suggest a complete flip in terms of voter faith - Labour on course for 410 seats while the Tories look to suffer a reduction to just 131. If correct, Starmer will become the first Labour PM since Gordon Brown in 2010.

Meanwhile, the Conservatives look at the prospect of a possible civil war while looking to replace Mr Sunak. A shambolic campaign from those currently in power has likely contributed to the party's likely defeat - despite Mr Sunak doing all in his power to convince the general public that he is the right man for the job.

His drive towards re-election has also been hindered by resignations from his nearest and dearest - and he is expected to resign if he fails to keep the UK under Tory rule. However, many of his contenders for replacement are nervously awaiting their own results to see if their leadership dreams will burn out bright.

Penny Mordaunt, Grant Shapps, Suella Braverman, Steve Baker and Robert Jenrick all face an uphill battle to return to Parliament, while Priti Patel, Tom Tugendhat and Victoria Atkins could all survive the fight for leadership.

Elsewhere, the polls suggest that the Liberal Democrats will sit on 61 seats by the end of the night, Reform UK on 13 and The Green Party on two. Meanwhile, in Scotland, the SNP are expected to secure 10 seats with Plaid Cymru in Wales on four.
