LONDON: The Tories have taken a string of former Labor strongholds, as an exit poll suggests they are set to win the election with a comfortable majority.

Labor have lost seats in the north of England and Wales in areas that voted Leave in the 2016 EU referendum.

The results point to the BBC exit poll suggesting a Tory majority of 86 as being broadly accurate, although most seats have yet to declare.

Labor are set to win 71 fewer seats than in 2017, the exit poll suggests.

The Scottish National Party have made their first gains of the night, taking Rutherglen and Hamilton West from Labor and Angus from the Conservatives.
