Sir Keir Starmer has become the UK's Prime Minister after Labour's drubbing of the Tories and the SNP. 

He met with the King at Buckingham Palace on Friday morning following the resignation of Rishi Sunak.

Labour has won 412 of the 648 seats declared so far, giving them a majority of 176.

The Tories are on 121, 

In a farewell statement in Downing Street, Mr Sunak said: “To the country, I would like to say first and foremost, I am sorry.

“I have given this job my all, but you have sent a clear signal that the government of the United Kingdom must change. And yours is the only judgment that matters.

“I have heard your anger, your disappointment, and I take responsibility for this loss.”

Mr Sunak said: “Following this result I will step down as party leader – not immediately, but once the formal arrangements for selecting my successor are in place.

“It is important that, after 14 years in government, the Conservative Party rebuilds, but also that it takes up its crucial role in opposition professionally and effectively.”
