UK exit polls: Tories win most seats, not majority

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has indicated he could attempt to form a coalition government, seeking to keep his ruling Labour party in power following an uncertain election.

Exit polls say the main opposition Conservatives appear likely to claim the most number of seats in Britain's national election Thursday.

Brown pledged action Friday on election reform -- a key demand from the Liberal Democrats, Brown's likely partners -- and stressed that Britain needed "strong, stable and principled government" to ensure an economic recovery.

He spoke after he won his own Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath district in Scotland.
