Several senior Lib Dems from the south have joined calls for Nick Clegg to resign as party leader in the wake of Thursday's elections. Lib Dem candidate in Winchester Jackie Porter says the Lib Dems need a new leader.

Former Romsey MP Sandra Gidley has signed a letter urging Mr Clegg to quit. It's also been signed by Martin Tod, a Winchester councillor, who was the Lib Dems' general election candidate there in 2010.
