Polls have opened in a historic referendum on whether the UK should remain a member of the European Union or leave.
An estimated 46,499,537 people are entitled to take part in the vote – a record number for a UK poll.
It is only the third nationwide referendum in UK history and comes after a four-month battle for votes between the leave and remain campaigns.
The referendum ballot paper asks the following question: “should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?”
The Electoral Commission estimates a final result “around breakfast time” on Friday.
