Prime Minister Theresa May has no plans to resign despite a disastrous election campaign that has ultimately led to a hung parliament for the UK.

The former Prime Minister faced calls to stand down from from very early on Friday morning – from both within her own party and from rivals.

However, Sky News reported sources as saying May has no such plans whatsoever.

Jeremy Corbyn said in his acceptance speech after he was confirmed as MP for Islington North that May should "make way for a government that is truly representative of this country".

Meanwhile, Tory MP Anna Soubry said the PM needs to "consider her position".

Asked by the BBC whether May should stand down, Soubry said it was a matter for the PM but added: "It's bad."
