>> Polling day in Britain's snap election. After seven short weeks of campaigning, leaders heading out to cast their votes. Millions of voters following suit across the UK.

>> When she first called it, Prime Minister Theresa May's conservative party was thought to be headed for a landslide victory. But the campaign has seen unexpected twists. A steep decline in May's once commanding poll lead over the opposition labor leader, Jeremy Corbyn. And attacks in Manchester, in London, that killed some 30 people.
Security very much in the spotlight as police deal with the fallout from Saturday's attack in London bridge, with more raids and arrests. The election was supposed to be about Brexit.
