The country has voted to leave the EU, leaving the Remain Campaign victorious in a referendum that a record breaking 46,499,537 people could vote in.

The leave campaign won with 51.9% of the vote.

This is the third ever nationwide referendum and voters were asked: “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?”

Counting will begin once the polls close at 10pm and the 382 voting areas will each declare their own results.

The overall result was declared in Manchester by the Chief Counting Officer once all of the districts have declared.

The four-month long campaign has caused a divide in parliament with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn siding with Conservative leader David Cameron on the remain side while Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson lead the charge on the leave side.
