General election 2019 night: What, where, when? Key times to watch out for
What results to look out for, and when, on election night with BBC Electioncast's Adam Fleming.

Welcome to our live coverage

The BBC is reporting from all of the 24 election counts in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

The three counties mainly returned Conservatives at the last general election in 2017.

The exceptions were Luton South, Luton North and Bedford, which went to Labour.

There could be interesting battles ahead in constituencies where the politicians who won in 2017 have left their parties and are standing as independents in this one.

Former Conservatives Dominic Grieve in Beaconsfield and David Gauke in South West Herts are going up against Tories this time.

In Luton South, Labour's Gavin Shuker won in 2017, but he is also standing as an independent this time.

Check who's standing on the BBC's Find a constituency page.

East MPs among Brexit vote rebels

A number of MPs in the east of England were among 11 Tory rebels who voted against the government, defeating a key Brexit vote.

The backbench revolt in the Commons last night resulted in the first significant defeat for Theresa May's Brexit legislation.

Eleven Conservatives - including South Cambridgeshire's Heidi Allen, Huntingdon's Jonathan Djanogly, Beaconsfield MP Dominic Grieve and North East Hertfordshire's Sir Oliver Heald - chose to side with Labour in demanding that MPs be given a vote on any Brexit deal before it is finalised.

Former attorney general backs May as MP

Patrick Byrne

BBC News

Dominic Grieve, the MP for Beaconsfield and former attorney general, has said he is not one of the Conservatives with knives out for Prime Minister Theresa May and that he is backing her to carry on.

Before Mrs May went to Buckingham Palace to seek permission to form a minority government he told the BBC: "Seeing that the Queen's government has got to be carried on and there is no party apart from the Conservative Party capable of acting as the government, the idea that it would be in the national interest to change the prime minister at this stage seems to me to be a little far-fetched."
