Theresa May's plan to secure a large Conservative majority has backfired spectacularly. Today, we woke up to a hung parliament and a Conservative Party with 12 fewer MPs than it had yesterday. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – buoyed by his party winning 31 new seats – has called on May to resign as Prime Minister, but she's already gone ahead and spoken to the Queen about forming a new government with support from the DUP.

Journalists have been waiting outside 10 Downing Street all morning for May, and she's now finally about to address the public.
