General Election 2019: Always look on the bright side of life

| By Elise Brighouse

Whether you're over the moon or deflated about the exit poll predictions a few hours ago, social media was awash with colour yesterday as people (and their pets) took to polling stations.

Here are some of the highlights...

#DogsAtPollingStations

As voters headed to the polls all day, many took their dogs and #DogsAtPollingStations trended nationwide, giving a little furry cuteness to the critical day in British Politics.

#CatsAtPollingStations

Much like man’s best friends, cats headed out to the polls today after their owners.

Memes, memes and more memes

And an amazing turnout....
