Brexit: How London Fared in the Votes


The UK voted to leave the EU - so which way did London sway in the poles?

Across the 33 boroughs, 59.9 percent voted for Britain to remain in the EU with some areas reaching 70 percent. 

Barking and Dagenham, Bexley, Sutton, Havering and Hillingdon were the only areas to have a majority vote from a Brexit. 

Here is a statement on the BBC from Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, he believes London will "continue to be the successful city" but called for the UK to remain part of the single market. "Leaving the single market of 500m people - with its free-trade benefits - would be a mistake", he said.

French President Francois Hollande shares the sentiment that leaving the EU could seriously jeopardize Britain's prized access to the bloc's single market, according to Reuters on Wednesday. 

In the rest of the country, people in the East and West Midlands had the highest proportion of Leave voters. Northern Ireland and Scotland were the only ones who championed the Remain campaign with London.
