Brexit live: David Cameron resigns after EU referendum result

Trump hails Brexit vote a 'great thing'

The Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood, has called it a “dark and uncertain morning.”
She said: “People in Wales and elsewhere in the UK have voted to leave the European Union – their will must be respected.

“The top priority now must be to secure political and economic stability for Wales and the rest of the United Kingdom.
“With Scotland voting to remain and a second independence referendum now on the cards, it is clear that the UK cannot continue in its current form. Wales, its economy and its communities will soon be at the full mercy of the Westminster elite and robust action must be taken to mitigate the impact of this.
“All the promises made by the eave campaign, with regards to safeguarding grants and financial support for Wales and our NHS must now be fully honoured, not only up to 2020 under current EU programmes, but beyond that into the future.
“Plaid Cymru will work to ensure that every penny and every key power that is handed down directly from Brussels comes to Wales.
“On this dark and uncertain morning for our country, people can rest assured that Plaid Cymru is united, confident and focused on getting the best for Wales. We are determined to do everything we can in order to empower our national institution and protect our communities.”
The EU referendum turnout represents the the single highest UK-wide election turnout of the past two decades.
The final turnout was 72.2%, higher than any general referendum since 1997 but lower than that recorded in the Scottish independence referendum in 2014 when turnout reached 84.6%.
Below is a selection of voter turnout in selected general elections and the 2014 Scottish independence referendum.
