Britain’s voters have made their decision to keep faith with Boris Johnson as prime minister handing him a mandate to leave the European Union by the 31 January 2020.

In a night that saw previously staunch Labour seats in the north of England fall to the Conservatives, we hear from from political editor Heather Stewart and north of England reporter Josh Halliday.

Joining Anushka Asthana to discuss the implications of today’s results are columnist Owen Jones, former Labour minister Alan Johnson and the former leader of the Conservatives in Scotland Ruth Davidson.
