Leader of the Labour party Jeremy Corbyn headed to the polls in his constituency, the London Borough of Islington, on Thursday morning.
Polling stations opened at 0700 GMT in 650 constituencies across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Official results are expected to start coming in after polls close at 2200 GMT. This is the third UK general election in less than five years.
