The SNP vote has collapsed, according to the exit poll.

The party is expected to lose almost half of his seats in the election, according to the new data.

It will lose 22 seats in the election, taking it down to 34, according to the poll.

Those lost seats are expected to go to the Conservatives, which has been polling well in Scotland. If that happens, it would mean that it is on track to lose large numbers of seats elsewhere.

The Tories are expected to have only 314 seats in Parliament, losing 17 seats.
