Prepared by polling firm Ipsos for the BBC, ITV and Sky News, the poll predicts that Conservative Harriet Cross has a 58 per cent chance of winning the new constituency.

Incumbent SNP MP Richard Thomson has a 42 per cent chance of winning, according to the new predictions.

The exit poll is based on survey results which were taken outside polling stations today.

Across the country, the exit poll predicts that Labour will win a total of 410 seats to secure a huge majority, while the Conservative Party will fall to just 131 seats.

A brutal night is predicted for the SNP, however, with their total to plummet to a mere 10 seats - down from 48 in the 2019 General Election.

In third place, the poll predicts, will be the Liberal Democrats with 61 MPs and the Reform Party predicted to take 13 seats.
