Britain's Conservatives have lost their majority in a snap general 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 Minister 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.
