Corbyn calls for May to resign

The people of Britain have voted for "hope" and rejected austerity, Jeremy Corbyn said as he called for Theresa May to quit as Prime Minister.

In his acceptance speech after being re-elected in Islington North with an exit poll pointing to a hung parliament, the Labour leader said it was time for a government that is "truly representative of all of the people of this country".

He said the UK could be a "different and fundamentally better place" as he claimed Labour's campaign had changed politics in the country.
