Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson loses seat

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson has narrowly lost her Dunbartonshire East seat to the SNP’s Amy Callaghan by 149 votes.

The Lib Dems are forecast by the BBC to win 13 seats – one more than in the 2017 election. 

Ms Swinson, 39, who had started the election campaign with the claim she could be the next prime minister, said she “will be making further remarks later today”.
