Pointing towards a hung parliament, the exit poll suggested the Tories would  fall 12 seats short of the 326 needed for an  absolute majority in the House of Commons. Labour were on 266, followed by the Scottish National Party on 34 and Liberal Democrats on 14. Plaid Cymru had three with the Green Party put on one.

According to the BBC, the exit poll also suggested that Home Secretary Amber Rudd, who was recently sent by Theresa May to represent her party at the televised leaders' debate,  was in danger of losing her Hastings and Rye seat.

 

Predictably, Twitter had plenty to say on the matter...

As we say, exit polls are merely a forecast. Let's just wait and see what the morning brings.
