The referendum, which decided the fate of U.K.'s membership in the E.U. took place on June 23, 2016. 51.9 percent of votes (17.4 million people) were cast to leave the EU, versus 48.1 percent (16.14 million people) for remaining part of the bloc. Scotland voted decisively to stay in the E.U. - 62% respondents there voted against Brexit.

The referendum outcome led to a rapid fall in the UK market - the pound fell to its lowest level since 1985, shares of leading companies dropped.
It may take the UK at least two years to negotiate its exit from the European Union.
