Turnout and LAB majority
A man has been jailed for a year after posting "let's kill every Muslim" on Facebook in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena bombing.
Keegan Jakovlevs, 22, from Wrexham, admitted publishing material with the intention of stirring up religious hatred.
Jakovlevs posted the public message shortly after the attack by suicide bomber Salman Abedi, which killed 22 people and injured scores of others on 22 May.
He was jailed at Mold Crown Court.
Turnouts for some seats in Wales are up compared to 2015.
Our reporters at the counts are saying:
- In Vale of Glamorgan, the turnout was 72.2% - up from 71% in 2015
- Torfaen 62.2% up from 61.4% in 2015
- Ogmore turnout 65.26%, up from 64%
- Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney 61%, a big jump from 2015 when it was 53%
- Vale of Clwyd 68% up from the last general election when it was 63%
- Wrexham turnout 70% up from 64.2 % in 2015
A senior Labour source in north Wales says despite the gloomy exit polls for the party in the Wrexham and Clwyd South constituencies, the party remains confident of holding both seats thanks to a strong youth vote.
Meanwhile in Ynys Mon, Plaid Cymru sources say the campaign has been a "struggle", while the Conservatives say they've been "greeted positively" on the doorstep. But both concede the Labour vote there seems to be holding up well.
The BBC has published a seat-by-seat results forecast. Based on analysis of the exit poll, professor of politics John Curtice and his team suggest that the Conservatives could win the following seats in Wales over the coming hours:
- Alyn and Deeside
- Clwyd South
The forecast doesn't suggest any gains for Labour in Wales.
It will be updated throughout the night.
