EU referendum results LIVE: UK votes to leave the European Union; PM Cameron to resign in October
In a historic referendum, Britain on Friday parted ways from the European Union (EU), becoming the first country to leave the 28-nation bloc. After the verdict, pro "Leave" groups in the Netherlands and other EU nations have called for similar referendums in their respective countries. The news of UK's exit from the European Union, after 43 years of its membership, sent ripples to the global financial markets, forcing several countries to adopt defensive measures to tackle the crisis.
The final results were announced at the Manchester Town Hall. Of the 33,577,342 votes cast, 17,410,742 votes were for 'Leave' and 16,141,241 votes for 'Remain'.
