Redbridge has voted to remain in the EU in line with most London boroughs.

With the overall result having been called for the leave campaign, the borough’s result was announced just before 6am following the count at Redbridge Town Hall, High Road, Ilford.

Turnout in the borough was 67.6 per cent, up on last year’s Ilford North and Ilford South general elections.

Across London, most boroughs have voted overwhelmingly in favour of staying in the EU.

Chief executive Andy Donald announced 69,213 people voted in favour of remain, with 59,020 voting to leave.
