UK Tories face worst election defeat in history – exit poll

The Labour party has won a major victory in the British general election, according to preliminary exit polls on Thursday evening.

The 2024 election exit poll interviewed voters at 133 polling stations selected by the Ipsos agency, and is paid for by several British media companies, including Sky and the state broadcaster BBC.

According to the poll, Labour has won 410 out of the 650 seats in the House of Commons, while the previously governing Tories won only 131.

Liberal Democrats would get 61 seats, Nigel Farage’s Reform UK 13, and the Scottish National Party (SNP) ten, the exit poll suggested. The Greens would get two seats and the Welsh party Plaid Cymru would have four.

Official results will be announced later in the evening.
