BRITAIN has voted to leave the European Union in what has been described as one of the most “catastrophic” days in history.

Brexit, which was ahead for most of the night, has won by a 52 per cent majority.

While some areas are still waiting to declare, they are unlikely to make a difference to the overall score.

How did your area fare?

Epping Forest voted to leave (63 per cent)

Waltham Forest voted to remain (60 per cent)

Harrow voted to remain (55 per cent)

Enfield voted to remain (56 per cent)

Barnet voted to remain (62 per cent)

Redbridge – voted to remain (54 per cent)

The moment has been called “seismic” and “unprecedented” as no other country has ever left an economic union before.

Chairman of the Home Affairs Keith Vaz said: “It’s just so, so terrible. We are one of the biggest countries of the EU and crucial to the success of the EU.

“It has huge implications for security and the migration crisis. We need the support of our EU partners to deal with the situation in Calais.

“It has huge implications for our counter terrorism strategy and all of these matters are now at risk.

“In 1,000 years I never would have believed the British would have voted in this way. They voted emotionally rather than looking at the facts.

“They voted emotionally rather than looking at the facts.”

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said although he was disappointed with the result, democracy had been served.

Mr Khan said: "Although we will be outside the EU, it is crucial that we remain part of the single market. Leaving the single market of 500 million people - with its free-trade benefits - would be a mistake.

"I will be pushing the Government to ensure this is the cornerstone of the negotiations with the EU. It is crucial that London has a voice at the table during those renegotiations, alongside Scotland and Northern Ireland.

"We all have a responsibility to now seek to heal the divisions that have emerged throughout this campaign - and to focus on that which unites us, rather than that which divides us."

He also sent a message to the one million Europeans who live in London.

"You are welcome here," he said.

"We value the enormous contribution you make to our city and that will not change as a result of this referendum.”
