Boris Johnson's Conservative Party have won the UK's general election.
The Tories secured their majority at around 5am when they crossed the threshold of 326 seats - with the exact number of gains to be determined after the final seats are declared later this morning.
Mr Johnson said they've now got a "powerful new mandate to get Brexit done".
The Tories made huge gains in a string of former Labour strongholds in the north of England that backed Brexit in 2016.
Jeremy Corbyn confirmed the vote would be his last general election as leader of the Labour party after his party lost dozens of seat.

The SNP made significant gains in Scotland - with leader Nicola Sturgeon suggesting they must now be granted another independence referendum.
In Northern Ireland, the DUP's Westminster leader Nigel Dodds lost his North Belfast seat to Sinn Féin's John Finucane.
