David Cameron’s conservatives have won the UK’s general elections and are expected to form a slender majority in the Commons.

His party made gains in England and Wales.

Ed Miliband is expected to stand down later after Labour Party was all but wiped out by the SNP in Scotland.

The Liberal Democrats are also heading for a fewer seats.David Cameron wins elections 2015

The Conservatives are expected to have won a 37% share of the national vote, Labour 31%, UKIP 13%, the Lib Dems 8%, the SNP 5%, the Green Party 4% and Plaid Cymru 1%.

PM David Cameron declared victory in a speech after being returned as MP for Witney, in which he set out his intention to press ahead with an in/out referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union and to complete the Conservatives’ economic plan.

“I want to bring our country together, our United Kingdom together, not least by implementing as fast as we can the devolution that we rightly promised and came together with other parties to agree both for Wales and for Scotland.

“In short, I want my party, and I hope a government I would like to lead, to reclaim a mantle that we should never have lost – the mantle of One Nation, One United Kingdom. That is how I will govern if I am fortunate enough to form a government in the coming days,” he said.


David Cameron is expected to hold an audience with Queen Elizabeth II later on Friday.

A sex scene appeared in the background during Scotland Tonight news debate on Wednesday.

A naked blonde woman could be seen on a studio TV screen as Ed Miliband’s leadership of the Labour Party was debated on STV’ Scotland Tonight.

The raunchy clip is thought to have been from an episode of Channel 4 drama Shameless.

The footage appeared on screen for a few seconds as host John MacKay questioned political blogger Dan Hodges.

Dan Hodges was in ITN’s London studio when the naked woman appeared on the screen behind him after the watershed. Shadow Scotland Office Minister Willie Bain was also involved in the debate.

Yesterday the broadcaster was forced to apologize for the mistake after viewer Paul Traynor made a formal complaint.

An insider told the Daily Record that no one in the newsroom realized the blunder had happened until they watched the footage.

The insider said: “It’s unfortunate but in a busy newsroom we have monitors showing the various TV channels.

“You can only see the scene for a few seconds and the vast majority of viewers probably won’t even have spotted it.

“However, it was probably a bit of a distraction and not exactly what they expected to see on Scotland Tonight.

“The show was on after the watershed but we will try not to let it happen again.”

A spokesman for STV said: “We hope viewers weren’t too distracted by the unexpected and incidental content on the show.”
