17494Southwark's three Labour MPs re-elected: (L-R) Neil Coyle, Helen Hayes, and Harriet Harman

It’s the result no one expected. We have a hung parliament, with neither Labour nor the Conservatives looking like they will be able to form a coalition government. A second general election looks all but certain.

All seats have been declared, and the results are:

  • Conservative 318 (-12)
  • Labour 261 (+29)
  • Scottish National Party 35 (-21)
  • Lib Dems 12 (+4)
  • Democratic Unionist Party 10 (+2)
  • Plaid Cymru 4 (+1)
  • Greens 1 (-)
  • UKIP 0 (-)

Here in our little slice of London, Labour has increased its majorities in all three constituencies.
