Some of the southern parts of the current Rushcliffe constituency would combine with Loughborough, to create a new Loughborough and South Rushcliffe seat.

Further south, some of the current South Leicestershire seat would become part of a new Daventry and Lutterworth constituency.

In Derbyshire and Derby, a new North East Derbyshire constituency will be created that is in line with its local authority of the same name, and there will be a Bolsover constituency containing the entirety of Bolsover District.

There are no proposed changes to the Bassetlaw, High Peak, Leicester East, Leicester South, North West Leicestershire and Mansfield seats - but all the rest face some minor tweaks which you can see here.

After a dramatic night, the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has called for the Prime Minister to resign.

In Nottinghamshire, Labour's John Mann held on to Bassetlaw, but with a reduced majority.

He says Theresa May made a big mistake in calling the general election:
