At the time of publication although there is still one constituency to declare (because there have been problems transporting ballot boxes on the Isles of Scilly) but it is expected to declare on the afternoon of the 13th December.

However the national tally so far is Conservative Party (364), Labour Party (203), Scottish National Party (48), Liberal Democrats (11), Democratic Unionist Party (8), Sinn Féin (7), Plaid Cymru (4), Green Party (1) and Other (2).

This means as the Conservatives hold more than half the the seats that there is a Conservative majority government.
