The polls are closed and the counts have begun after a day of voting across Britain in the EU referendum.

Voters have been deciding whether they want Britain to remain a member of the European Union or break away from it in what’s been referred to as the most important vote in a generation.

We’ll bring you the local results here on this website as soon as we have them as well - they should be announced between 2am and 6am. We’ll also bring you reaction once the final result is announced.
