Prime Minister David Cameron has announced he will resign after the UK public voted to leave the European Union – but how did your area vote?

Across the UK, 51.9 per cent voted to leave the EU, with 48.1 per cent wanting to remain.

The referendum turnout was 71.8 per cent – with more than 30 million people voting – and is the highest turnout at a UK-wide vote since the General Election of 1992.

Following the result, Mr Cameron has announced he will step down by October – with a Conservative leadership contest to come.

Locally, both North Herts and South Cambs were in favour of remaining in the EU, two of just five council areas in the east to come to that conclusion. The others were Cambridge, St Albans and Norwich.

Stevenage and Central Bedfordshire voted for a Brexit, a trend reflected across the eastern region as 42 of the 47 council areas voted to leave.

In total across the 47 council areas of the eastern region, 1,880,367 voted leave and 1,448,616 remain.

•North Herts:

Remain 42,234, leave 35,438. Turnout: 78.3 per cent

•South Cambs:

Remain 56,128, leave 37,061. Turnout: 72.2 per cent
