U.K. votes to leave the European Union
Britain has voted to leave the European Union, with the Leave campaign securing around 51.8 per cent of the vote.
David Cameron has resigned as Prime Minister, The Telegraph reports.
While England voted overwhelmingly for Brexit, Scotland and Northern Ireland backed Remain. Statements are expected to be made by Sinn Fein and the SNP later today calling for a breakaway from the Union. London backed Remain but the turnout was lower than expected because of bad weather.
