Have a look behind the scenes of the UK General Elections with Euronews' Tadgh Enright.


The job of a political reporter on election night might seem glamorous.

But it was anything but for Euronews' Tadhg Enright in London on Thursday as rain and wind lashed the UK capital on election day.

"This is why Britain does not like to hold elections in the wintertime," said our correspondent, standing in mud in Westminster.

"It is dark, it is wet, it is miserable here.

"I've even spoken to one former colleague of mine who told me that their studio had sprung a leak right over where the presenter is supposed to be standing and they are expecting to have real problems when they get underway reporting the election results overnight."
