Prime Minister Theresa May is "more likely than not" to call an early general election - despite initially stating that she had no intention to so.

ITV News Political Editor Robert Peston says the PM could call an early vote on multiple grounds.

This includes a "material change in circumstances" in the wake of Scotland's first minister Nicola Sturgeon's demands for a second Scottish independence referendum.

According to Peston, calling the general election early "won't be desperately easy", but is "not impossible".

And speculation among MPs suggest it could happen.
