With the UK preparing to leave the European Union this evening, we’ve made a poll to see what readers think of our departure.

More than three years have passed since the June 2016 referendum which saw 52 per cent of those polled vote to leave the EU.

But come 11pm this evening, the UK will no longer be a part of the EU or its political institutions, after 47 years of membership. The UK will remain part of the EU customs union and in the single market until the transition period ends on December 31.

Here's how our local authority areas voted in the 2016 referendum:

Central Bedfordshire - Leave 89,134 (56.1 per cent) Remain 69,670 (43.9 per cent)
