Rugby votes to leave the EU
The votes have been counted and Rugby has gone with the national mood by voting to leave the EU.
Ballot papers were counted overnight at the Benn Hall after polls closed at 10pm on Thursday - with the majority of Rugbeians putting a cross in the ’leave’ box.
A total of 25,350 people (43.2%) in the town voted to remain, while 33,199 (56.7%) voted to leave.
As anticipated, there was a big turnout of voters across the country - the largest since 1992 - and in Rugby turnout was 79%.
And with just a handful of areas in the UK left to declare their results, the overall national result in the EU referendum has been confirmed as a leave vote.
