A petition to stop the Conservatives forming a Minority Government with Northern Ireland's DUP has reached more than 500,000 signatures.

So far more than 514,000 people have signed the petition, which also calls for Prime Minister Theresa May to step down.

May has not indicated she intends to resign after yesterday’s shock election result, but said she was seeking to form a minority government in a “confidence and supply” deal with the DUP.

But since the announcement, some have criticised the Prime Minister for doing a deal with a party which opposes gay marriage and abortion.
