A regional daily ran two editions overnight showing contrasting fortunes on a good election night for the Tories and a bad one for Labour.
The front page of the second edition, sent at 4.30am, concentrated on Jeremy Corbyn’s misfortune and his announcement that he would not fight another election.
The MEN also ran a live blog through the night with reporters at every Greater Manchester count and a team anchoring content at its office.
The Leeds-based Post itself covered the exit poll on its front page this morning.
In Scotland, Dundee daily The Courier focused on the Scottish National Party’s gains, and what that could mean for a second independence referendum.
In Edinburgh, The Scotsman noted how the PM’s election “gamble” had paid off.
And in Glasgow, the Daily Record prepared for what it called a “Friday the 13th horror show” and a “nightmare on Downing Street” – opting only to show the back of Mr Johnson’s head on its front page.
The Record had yesterday called on readers to make Scotland “Tory-free” at the polls.
Finally, in Northern Ireland, the Belfast Telegraph concentrated on how the new Conservative majority had left the DUP “sidelined”.
