EU referendum: Britain votes to leave Europe in historic referendum
- Credit: PA
Britain has voted to leave the EU with 52 per cent of the vote, although the result in Redbridge is yet to be announced.
Major news outlets called the election for the Leave campaign.
As of 5am, Press Association reported that 331 authorities had declared out of 382, with the current vote percentages at 48.37pc remain and 51.63 to leave.
Counting problems at Redbridge Town Hall, High Road, Ilford, appear to be behind the late declaration, although an official recount has not been called.
Following early declarations for the Leave campaign, the pound has fallen to a 30-year low.
