Brexit - Look back at RNZ's live coverage of the UK's historic vote to leave the EU, with 'leave' winning by 52 percent to 48 percent.

  • England - with the exception of London - and Wales voted strongly to leave the EU.
  • Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to remain, raising the prospect of renewed campaigns for independence from the UK.
  • The pound has dropped to its lowest level since 1985.
