General election 2017: Sweet shop in Warwick predicts results

After official pollsters got it wrong over Brexit and Donald Trump's win, could a sweet shop in Warwick be the best place to predict the UK's 2017 general election result?

Customers to Mary's Sweet Emporium have been asked to choose the coloured sweets that best represent the way they intend to vote.

The sweets are collected in different jars and added up at the end of each day.

After using the same method to predict Brexit and the Conservatives' 2015 victory, the shop owner has promised to eat his hat if he gets next month's result wrong.
