Britain's opposition Conservatives won 306 seats to become the biggest party in parliament, but face power-sharing talks after falling short of an overall majority, final vote results showed Friday.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown's Labour party won 258 seats and the Liberal Democrats 57 in the 650-member House of Commons, after the last result from all constituencies contested in elections on Thursday was announced.
