UK Prime Minister Theresa May's future is looking uncertain after her election gamble appears to have backfired, the BBC has reported.

The opposition Labour Party, led by Jeremy Corbyn, has performed far better than polls indicated and is likely to cost May her majority in the UK Parliament.

Corbyn, speaking after being re-elected in Islington North, said it was time for Theresa May to go and "make way" for a government that would be "truly representative of the people of this country".

He said he was "very proud" of the results so far, which he said were a "vote for hope for the future" and said people were "turning their backs on austerity".
