Sir Keir Starmer has been crowned Labour leader.

Sir Keir was the favourite all along to win the competition, and will now finally replace Jeremy Corbyn.

He won the leadership in the first round, amassing more than 50 per cent of the vote.

He raked in 275,780 votes, which is more than Mr Corbyn did when he was first elected as leader.

Mr Starmer also got a higher percentage than Tony Blair, Labour's most successful ever leader who won three elections in a row.
