Jeremy Corbyn won a bitter-sweet victory in his Islington North seat as he announced he would stand down as Labour leader over his party's "disappointing" election results.
Mr Corbyn, Labour leader since 2015, beat Liberal Democrat Nick Wakeling by 26,188 votes, 7,027 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.
In his victory speech, Mr Corbyn conceded that it had been a "very disappointing night for the party".
Labour is on course for its worst result since 1935, the poll suggests, with the party forecast to lose 71 seats.
Mr Corbyn said he would not lead Labour in a future general election, but would stay on for the time being while a period of "reflection" and discussion takes place.
James Clark of the Conservative Party came third and the Green Party's Caroline Russell came fourth.
Voter turnout was down by 1.8 percentage points since the last general election.
Nearly 54,000 people, 71.6% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.
Two of the six candidates, Yosef David (The Brexit Party) and Nick The Brick (Monster Raving Loony Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
