Rotherham votes strongly to leave EU
68 per cent voted leave and 32 per cent voted to remain in the EU – the overall voter turn-out was 69.56 per cent.
Prime Minister David Cameron has resigned this morning and is expected to step down by October, when the Conservatives will have to elect a new leader.
There is already speculation a general election could be held later in the year.
“Cameron accidentally nearly breaks the Union, accidentally leads us out of EU – most calamitous PM for a century?”
In Rotherham, 197,616 people were registered to vote in the EU referendum.
