Snap election. May loses majority
UK election 2017: Conservatives lose majority
Britain's Conservatives have lost their majority in a snap general election that has resulted in a hung parliament.
With just a handful of seats left to declare, Thursday's poll shows gains for the opposition Labour Party.
This is seen as a humiliation for PM Theresa May, who chose to call the election to try to strengthen her hand in talks with the EU on Brexit.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn urged her to resign, but she said her party would "ensure" stability in the UK.
However Ms May does not plan to stand down, says BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg.
Earlier on Friday, the prime minister said: "At this time more than anything else, this country needs a period of stability."
