Labour have won the 2024 general election, with the party claiming 412 seats in a landslide election victory. In a crushing defeat for the Conservatives, they have won just 122 seats, with outgoing Prime Minister Rishi Sunak set to leave office a little over 18 months after coming to power.

Elsewhere, the Liberal Democrats enjoyed a resurgent night, claiming 71 seats, a substantial boost from their 2019 total of 11. There were mixed results for the smaller parties, with the SNP suffering at the hands of Labour’s Scottish revival to win just 10 seats, the Greens claiming 4 seats, and Reform 4 seats.
