The EU referendum vote result escalated rather quickly on Friday morning when Fox News reported we'd also left the UN.

The American news channel was getting a little ahead of itself but then this is the same network that claimed Birmingham was a Muslim-only city.

David Cameron has announced he will resign as prime minister following the UK’s decision to vote for Brexit.

In a result that has sent shockwaves around the world, Leave won 51.9% of the total vote to Remain’s 48.1% after the final count. Turnout in the referendum was 72.2%, or 46,500,001 people.

Despite an on-the-day poll predicting a win for Remain, Leave voters turned out in droves in order to take the UK out of the EU. 

A petition to hold a second referendum has already been started with so many people signing it the website temporarily crashed.
