Brexit results live: where to find EU referendum results update

Follow the Brexit results live on the New Statesman liveblog, or on TV or radio.

By New Statesman

Now that voting in the EU referendum has closed at 10pm, it’s time to wait for the results. We’ve already heard unexpectedly high votes for Leave in Newcastle and Sunderland, and the markets are volatile as a result, with sterling having already taken a bit hit. Scotland is coming through for Remain, as expected, but turnout in Glasgow was disappointing for Europhiles at 52 per cent. Inner London seems to be going Remain too. The question is whether that’s enough to outweigh some big margins in favour of Leave elsewhere. So far, it looks unlikely.

By 3am or 4am we should have some idea of the ultimate result.

The best way to follow the Brexit results live, of course, is the New Statesman EU referendum liveblog, which will be updated throughout the night. Our special correspondent Stephen Bush has already found wine in the ITV green room. You can also read our guide for the results to look out for – it’s all about the swing in Sunderland. (And no, there isn’t a formal exit poll tonight.)

You can also follow the results on BBC One from 9:55pm with David Dimbleby, or on ITV from 10pm with Tom Bradby. On Sky News, Adam Boulton will be taking you up till dawn.

On Radio 4 the coverage begins with The World Tonight at 10pm, with a dedicated broadcast from 11pm to 6am. On Radio 5, Stephen Nolan starts the coverage at 9:55pm and again, updates will go on through the night. Iain Dale and Shelagh Fogarty provide the coverage on LBC from 10pm.
