“A mandate like this comes with a great responsibility,” Labour leader Keir Starmer told supporters at a triumphant dawn rally in London, moments after the results that sealed its landslide win were announced.

BBC reports that as the final figures come in, Labour is expected to win 410 seats, with the Conservatives on 144.

Also, Rishi Sunak has accepted defeat, and said he called Starmer to congratulate him.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister-elect, Keir Starmer, has pledged to start a period of “national renewal” in the UK after his opposition Labour Party defeated the ruling Conservatives in the general election.

“Today we start the next chapter — begin the work of change, the mission of national renewal and start to rebuild our country,” Starmer said in a triumphant victory speech in London after his party secured a majority in parliament.
