UK voters head to polls in general election that could decide future of Brexit
The UK general elections are underway and have been billed as the most important to take place in decades.
It's the third election held in the UK in less than five years.
The main contenders are Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Labour main opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.
It's believed that these elections will bring an end to the Brexit deadlock that has gripped Britain since 2016.
Isaac Mugabi, a correspondent from German news outlet Deutsche Welle, says UK residents have been suffering from 'Brexit fatigue' and want a clear conclusion to the matter.

If Boris Johnson wins, he is expected to make good on his promise to "get Brexit done" by the end of January.
Johnson's Conservatives are seeking a majority win, while his political rivals are desperate to alter course on Brexit, reports Mugabi.
