Day the young voted It’s a hung parliament as Labour surge by Nicole Le Marie Published

In a resignation statement on the Conservative Home website, Timothy conceded that the campaign had failed to communicate "Theresa's positive plan for the future", and missed signs of surging support for the opposition Labour Party.

On Sunday, May appointed former BBC journalist Damien Green as First Secretary of State - effectively May's deputy Prime Minister - in a reshuffle of her cabinet.

Hogan said another British election might be needed to give a government a mandate to make the hard decisions required to secure a Brexit deal, as May was "very damaged" as a result of the poll.

However, the Conservative Party were only 287 votes from forming a majority government and could have done so by winning four seats.

"It is not the outcome any of us would have wanted in the Conservative Party". May had relied on Timothy and Hill for advice and support since her previous job at the interior ministry, and their resignations will be a personal blow.

She said they had had "very good discussions" in Belfast on Saturday with Conservative chief whip Gavin Williamson, but declined to be drawn on the details.

After confirming on Friday that her top five ministers would keep their jobs, including finance minister Philip Hammond, May is expected to continue to appoint the government that will take on one of the most demanding negotiations in British history.

However, May's office said Sunday talks were still ongoing with the Democratic Unionist Party on seeking its support for a Conservative government after earlier saying an outline agreement had been reached. DUP leader Arlene Foster told Sky News she would meet May on Tuesday.

Several hundred people - many Labour voters - protested in central London against the potential alliance, with one organiser leading chants of "racist, sexist, anti-gay, the DUP has got to go". "I'm ready for another general election", Corbyn said.

"Our priorities are to ensure that there is as close as possible a deal between the United Kingdom and the EU, having regard to the very severe consequences and severe adverse consequences of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union on us here in Ireland", he said.

The statement came as British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson denied plotting to topple May, who has been weakened by the Conservative Party's disastrous election result.

The timing is challenging, with Britain due to start negotiating the terms of its exit from the European Union with the bloc's 27 other members on June 19.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had given the party "confidence" about selling party policies such as public ownership of the railways, she added.

She seems secure for the immediate future, because senior Conservatives don't want to plunge the party into a damaging leadership contest.

The negotiations are set to start in just over a week, but it is not clear whether May will be changing her stance on Brexit. "May fights to remain PM", said the front page of the Daily Telegraph, while the Times of London said: "May stares into the abyss".
