Prime Minister Theresa May has finally reached an agreement with the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) allowing her to officially form a minority government.
May was pictured with the DUP leader Arlene Foster, while their respective Westminster chief whips, Gavin Williamson for the Conservative Party and Jeffrey Donaldson for the DUP, signed the deal.
The DUP took a total of 10 seats at the general election on June 8.
The Conservatives reduced their share in the House of Commons to 317, falling short of the 326 needed for a majority.
The Tories now hope to be able to pass policy through the Commons with the tactical support of the DUP.
