Prime Minister David Cameron has announced he will resign after the UK public voted to leave the European Union – but how did your area vote?

Across the UK, 51.9 per cent voted to leave the EU, with 48.1 per cent wanting to remain.

The referendum turnout was 71.8 per cent – with more than 30 million people voting – and is the highest turnout at a UK-wide vote since the General Election of 1992.

Following the result, Mr Cameron has announced he will step down by October – with a Conservative leadership contest to come.

Locally Stevenage and Central Bedfordshire voted for a Brexit, a trend reflected across the eastern region as 42 of the 47 council areas voted to leave.

North Herts was among just five council areas in the east voting to remain, with St Albans, South Cambridgeshire, Cambridge and Norwich the others.

In total across the 47 council areas of the eastern region, 1,880,367 voted leave and 1,448,616 remain.
