If you're in a rush this morning, here's what you may have missed throughout the night in the General Election.

The Conservatives have won a majority, with Boris Johnson saying the result gives a clear mandate to “get Brexit done”.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn announced he will not lead the party into any future elections.

In the North-East, seven seats previously held by Labour returned Conservative MPs – Darlington, Bishop Auckland, Sedgefield, Redcar, Stockton South, North West Durham and Blyth Valley.

The MPs losing their seats were Jenny Chapman, Helen Goodman, Phil Wilson, Anna Turley, Dr Paul Williams, and Laura Pidcock, tipped by some as a future Labour deputy leader.
