The BBC reports: David Cameron is UK’s new prime minister:
In a speech at Downing Street, Mr Cameron said he and Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg would "put aside party differences and work hard for the common good and the national interest".
Details on the Conservative-Liberal Democrat deal to follow. I have heard unconfirmed reports that it includes a vote on the alternative vote and cabinet positions for the LibDems.
