It has been hailed as the most important general election in a generation and the Belfast Telegraph will be at all of Northern Ireland's counting centres as the results come rolling in.

The Belfast Telegraph's latest Brexit briefing, plus opinion and analysis

Our round-the-clock coverage begins after polling stations close at 10pm on Thursday, when our website will be following each twist and turn of the evening until all of the 18 constituencies are declared.

We'll also be covering the national results during what should be a nail-biting count, as well as bringing expert analysis from our political editor Suzanne Breen.

Northern Ireland's key battlegrounds - North, East and South Belfast, along with Fermanagh and South Tyrone and Foyle - will be the ones to watch.

North Down is also guaranteed to change hands following the decision by independent unionist Lady Sylvia Hermon not to stand.

Follow us on Twitter via @BelTel for live reporting from counting centres in Belfast's Titanic Exhibition Centre, Omagh, Magherafelt and Bangor.
