Sky News Projects UK Votes To Leave EU
Sky News is projecting the UK has voted to leave the European Union.
The pound plummeted to a 31 year low as the market responded to growing expectations that the UK was to split from Brussels after 43 years.
The outcome plunges into doubt the future of the Prime Minister David Cameron, who called the referendum, with some of his own backbenchers openly raising the possibility of a general election.
It follows a divisive campaign, which saw bitter “blue-on-blue” attacks.
