The EU Referendum – the last word

So Britain will leave the EU and Boris Johnson will be the favourite to become Prime Minister. Who would have thought it? Apart from Boris, obviously.

On the positive side, 72 per cent turnout is a very healthy sign for a participatory democracy. About ten per cent more people voted in the referendum than usually vote in general elections.

The Leicester Centre for Journalism team will sign off now after nearly 20 hours of coverage through the polling hours and then into a long night and morning.

Thank you for sharing this dramatic and historic night with us. It remains to be seen how this decision will affect Britain.
