Theresa May's Conservatives lost their west stronghold of Kensington to the Labour Party by a mere 20 votes, officials said today, in a final electoral blow to the embattled British prime minister.

The result, the last to be announced from yesterday's election, means the Conservatives have won 318 seats -- eight short of an overall majority in the 650-seat -- and Labour 262.
