Denbighshire joins UK in voting to LEAVE EU

The UK has voted by 52% to 48% to leave the European Union after 43 years in yesterday’s referendum, the BBC’s online news service reported just before 6.30am.

The report says London and Scotland voted strongly to stay in the EU but the remain vote has been undermined by poor results in the north of England.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage hailed the result as the UK's "independence day", it adds.

The majority of Denbighshire voters opted to leave.
At just after 2.20am this morning, the county council announced the result of the poll in the county.

Of the 52,108 people who voted, 28,177 went for Leave against  23,955 who chose Remain.
The turnout was 69.1% (52,108 people voted out of 75,362 people eligible to vote).

The number of postal votes issued was 15,177 – the number returned was 13,035 (85.9%).
The number of polling stations was 67.
