His comment came as some were calling for Jeremy Corbyn to resign after exit polls poll put Labour on 191 seats, which would be its worst result since 1935.

Mr Jarvis, said: "I'm pretty busy at the moment because as well as being the MP I'm also the city region mayor and that's a massive commitment"

"I take very seriously the commitment I've made to the people of South Yorkshire to serve as their mayor.

"What I'm going to do is go and look at my phone and see what is happening around the country and maybe even get home and maybe even see my family and maybe even have a cup of tea.

"And that's my priority. I'm not thinking much further than my next cup of tea."

Barnsley Central: Labour hold

Dan Jarvis has been re-elected as the MP for Barnsley Central, with a significantly decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat the Brexit Party's Victoria Felton by 3,571 votes, less than half the majority at the 2017 election.

Iftikhar Ahmed of the Conservative Party came third and Liberal Democrat Will Sapwell came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 4.3 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 37,000 people, 56.5% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Four of the seven candidates, Will Sapwell (Liberal Democrat), Tom Heyes (Green), Ryan Williams (The Yorkshire Party) and Donald Wood (independent) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Mr Jarvis won his seat with 14,804 votes, with Brexit Party's Victoria Felton coming second with 11,233 votes.

He said: "Over for the past few weeks, I've had countless conversations with too many people who've expressed concerns and in some cases anger in a Labour Party that they think no longer speaks for them

"We have to listen to those concerns and work to regain the trust where it's been lost."

He went on to criticise national government for neglecting towns in the north of England saying "ending northern neglect" would be his priority.

"The massive potential of Barnsley and Yorkshire should be shouted from the rooftops", he said.
