Election Day : Day of Reckoning

Millions of people in constituencies across the UK are casting their votes in the general election.

David Cameron was the first of the main UK party leaders to cast their vote. The Tory leader went to a community hall in Witney, Oxfordshire, shortly after 1030 BST, accompanied by his wife Samantha.

Labour leader and Prime Minister Gordon Brown went to vote shortly after 1100 BST at a community centre close to his home in North Queensferry, Fife. His wife Sarah was with him.

Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats, arrived at a polling station in Sheffield Hallam at 1120 BST. His wife Miriam is unable to vote in the general election because she is a Spanish citizen.
