The result itself

Unless the result is very close, we should have a clear idea of whether Britain has voted for Brexit before the official announcement is made in Manchester. This is because individual local authorities will be declaring their results as and when the votes are counted, so we’ll have a good idea of what’s happening up and down the country before an official declaration. This declaration is not expected until about 5am, at the very earliest.
