Vote Leave Party EU Referendum Results

Jubilant Leave campaigners celebrate victory in the historic EU vote

Sky News is projecting the UK has voted to leave the European Union.

The pound plummeted to a 31 year low as the market responded to growing expectations that the UK was to split from Brussels after 43 years.

The outcome plunges into doubt the future of the Prime Minister David Cameron, who called the referendum, with some of his own backbenchers openly raising the possibility of a general election.

It follows a divisive campaign, which saw bitter “blue-on-blue” attacks.

The result saw Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon pave the way for a second independence referendum, arguing the EU vote “makes clear that the people of Scotland see their future as part of the European Union” after all 32 local authority areas returned majorities for Remain.
