Election Night 2015: Where To Watch The Results Live Streamed Online And On TV

UPDATE: David Cameron looks set to remain Prime Minister with Conservatives the largest single party in the new Parliament, according to an exit poll released as ballots closed in the General Election.

In what would be a disaster for both Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg if borne out by results, the joint BBC/ITN/Sky poll put Conservatives on 316 - just 10 short of the magic number of 326 needed to command an absolute majority in the House of Commons.

Labour were forecast to secure just 239 - 17 fewer than their tally at the start of the election campaign - with the Scottish National Party almost achieving a clean sweep of 58 of the 59 seats north of the border.

The results of the General Election 2015 will come in from 11pm on Thursday evening, and into the early morning of Friday 8 May - but exit polls giving an indication of the outcome will land a little earlier on Thursday night.

You can watch a live stream from Sky News below, as the results come in, from 9pm on Thursday night until a new government is formed.

Adam Boulton will begin the coverage, joined by political editor Faisal Islam and polling expert Michael Thrasher. The first result is expected shortly before 11pm, from Sunderland.

Dermot Murnaghan will begin presenting at 5am, after the results have come out, and when the negotiations begin.

You can also watch a whole host of special election programmes on TV:
