First results in UK's historic referendum on EU membership

LONDON: -- The first results in the UK's referendum on whether to remain in the European Union are coming in.


Leave won in Sunderland by 22%, while Newcastle voted for Remain by a margin of 1% - tighter than predicted.

A full picture is not expected to emerge for two or three hours as counting continues around the country. Opinion polls were suggesting a Remain win.

Turnout looks set to be higher than at last year's general election.

Still only 40,000 votes in it.

That IS close.

And with that, I am off to bed as the result will be expected breakfast time in the U.K.

Good night and have fun watching the results.

Looking at the vote there are no surprises with Scotland. Personally I would give them independence but if they are after another referendum then the leave campaign will have just as much claim to another one, with this been so close too. Whatever the outcome the EU and its membership will not end here today.

Very true.

I fear that the EU is very much

A long way to go yet.

Whatever the result i hope people accept the choice of the people and we can move forward - the UK is still in the same place on google earth this morning and i still appear to be British.

I do think there will be a need to look at some behaviour that went on during the run up though which shouldn't just be brushed under the carpet.

Good night, although I wouldn't call it fun. Nail biting but more exciting than watching the Euros (football).
