Brexit results so far: how Britain is voting in the EU referendum

EU referendum results as they happen - when it comes to Brexit, it's all about seeing what happens in Sunderland. 

By New Statesman

After closing time for the Brexit polls at 10pm, the count has begun. With no Brexit exit poll, we won’t have any idea about the public’s answer to the referendum question until the results come out. There are a few key constituencies to look out for, such as Sunderland. 

The YouGov day-of-polling survey has Remain ahead, although that’s not an exit poll and no one feels confident enough to call the result from it. 

We’ll update our referendum live blog with results as they come in – click here – we expect to have a good idea of the result by 3am, but it could be as late as 6am if the contest is tight. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to get the result as soon as it happens.
