Clegg: A cruel and punishing night for Lib Dems

Nick Clegg has said it has been a "cruel and punishing" night for the Liberal Democrats, as he hinted that he was considering his future as party leader.

"It is now painfully clear, that this has been a cruel and punishing night for the Liberal Democrats," Clegg said after holding onto his seat.

"The election has profound implications for the country. It also has profound implications for the Liberal Democrats.

"And I will be seeking to make further remarks about the implications of this election both for the country and for the party that I lead and for my position in the Liberal Democrats when I make remarks to my colleagues in the Liberal Democrats later this morning when I return to Westminster."

ITV News' Tom Bradby said Mr Clegg's speech sounded like it was a "resignation speech".
