  3. Kettering MP Hollobone won't call for May's resignation

    The Conservative MP for Kettering, Philip Hollobone, says he won't support calls for Theresa May to resign as prime minister.

    Speaking to BBC Radio Northampton, he said: "I think she's done the right thing in being determined to press on and form a government. The all-important Brexit negotiations start in 10 days' time."

    However, he added that there had been shortcomings with the party's campaign.

    "It was all going well until the manifesto was published," Mr Hollobone said.

    "It really hadn't been thought through: the social care proposals, the winter fuel allowance proposals, weren't presented properly and there was all sorts of confusion.

    "The election clearly didn't go to plan and we've got to now work with the sum that we've got. She's doing the right thing by pressing on, putting a new government together and getting Brexit off to the best start we can achieve"

    Mrs May has said she will put together a government with the support of the Democratic Unionists (DUP) that can provide can provide "certainty" for the future.

    The Tories needed 326 seats to win another majority but, with 649 out of the 650 seats declared, they fell short and must rely on the DUP to continue to rule.

    He told BBC Look East: "I think Jeremy Corbyn has had a good campaign and has inspired people.

  13. Huntingdonshire UKIP councillor says 'collapse predicted'

    Nic Rigby

    BBC News

    UKIP Huntingdonshire district councillor Peter Reeve has talked about the disintegration of his party's vote.

    Peter Reeve

    "We were pointing out our votes would collapse at this election. It was not a normal general election," he said.

    "UKIP stood down in some of its best seats in the country and where we did stand down, UKIP voters were the kingmakers."

    "It certainly has been a dramatic night. This prime minister did not need to call this election. It started off on Brexit and it was all Brexit at the beginning.

    "As soon as the manifesto was published it went way off the Brexit agenda with our kind of voters finding it difficult to support even Brexit MPs when their manifesto was so bad with dementia tax, uncertainties over income tax rises, the end of free school meals."

  14. Lib Dem president rules out coalition with Labour... and Tories

    Katy Lewis

    BBC Local Live

    According to Hertfordshire's Baroness Sal Brinton, the president of the Liberal Democrats, her party, who gained four seats, have ruled out forming a coalition with Labour.

    But she said a coalition with Theresa May and the Conservatives wasn't an option either.

    She said: "We absolutely won't do it; you've got to have some core principles about the major piece of work that any government's going to do over the term of its government, and if Theresa May has made it plain that that is Brexit - more than that, it's hard Brexit - we just start from such polarised opposite positions that I cannot see how we would work with her."

  15. Gavin Shuker: 'We fought a spirited campaign'

    Katy Lewis

    BBC Local Live

    Labour's Gavin Shuker, who held his seat in Luton South, has been talking about the "incredible move" to go from a majority of 5,000 to nearly 14,000.

    "I have to say six weeks ago when Theresa May first called this election there was a very real possibility that we might lose but we fought a spirited campaign here and people have rewarded it," he said.

    BBC Local Live

    Treasury Secretary David Gauke, who was re-elected in South West Hertfordshire, has said that whatever happens now, the upcoming Brexit talks need continuity.

    He said: "What is really important for the country is that we get those negotiations right and there is not an unlimited time here; the clock is already ticking, Article 50 has been triggered and we need a government that can get on and negotiate that deal."

    Katy Lewis

    BBC Local Live

    Labour's Mohammad Yasin took the Bedford seat from Conservative Richard Fuller by fewer than 800 votes.

    He told the BBC he put the win down to a hard-working campaign team and that the party “raised issues people were concerned about”.

    Mr Yasin said issues on the doorstep included Bedford Hospital - which could lose services to Milton Keynes Hospital - plus "unfair funding to the police and the lack of funds to schools".

    “I will work with the government to get more funding for schools, for Beds Police, for the NHS and Bedford Hospital,” he said.

    The new MP said he was not surprised at Jeremy Corbyn’s success and said Theresa May "needs to go now".

    In what seems like a lifetime ago, shortly after the polls closed, we tweeted this footage of guinea pig Scrabble predicting the outcome of the election.

    Well, it seems that a guinea pig has the same powers of perception as an exit poll.

    Owner Hannah A'Court said Scrabble "loved his five minutes of fame".
