Labour has won a landslide majority in the General Election according to the exit poll. The projection gives Labour 410 out of 650 seats in the House of Commons, with the Conservatives reduced to just 131 seats.

Major figures in the Conservative Party such as Steve Baker, Penny Mordaunt and Grant Shapps are set to lose their seats, while Jeremy Hunt could be the first Chancellor of the Exchequer to be ousted at a General Election in modern history.

Labour on the other hand are expected to make impressive gains in London and the rest of the country. According to the BBC /Sky/ ITV exit poll the Liberal Democrats could also enjoy a gain of 50 seats across the country, up from just 11 constituencies won in 2019 to 61.

Elsewhere Reform are expected to win 13 seats, the SNP reduced to 10 seats, Plaid Cymru to win four seats and Greens win two seats.

How does this compare to 2019?

In 2019 the Boris Johnson-led Conservative Party won a landslide victory returning 365 out of 650 seats. The 2024 election is expected to return the lowest number of Tory MPs on record with just 131 seats.

Labour in 2019 had suffered a devastating defeat with Jeremy Corbyn at the helm of the party - reduced to 202 seats. This year they're expected to more than double their seat count with 410 candidates on course to win across the UK.

The Lib Dems won 11 seats in 2019, but are projected to boost their numbers to 61 seats. Reform UK - known as the Brexit Party in 2019 - did not contest the previous General Election, but are on course to win 13 seats this year. Pollsters have warned that projections for smaller parties may not be as accurate as they are for larger parties.

The SNP are set to be reduced to just 10 seats according to the exit poll - down from 48 in 2019. Plaid Cymru won four seats in 2019 and is also expected to win four in this election.

The Greens won one seat in 2019, and are expected to win two this year.
