Nigel Farage has hailed a ‘victory for real people’ with the EU referendum on the brink of delivering a stunning victory for Brexit.
Projections show the Leave campaign is set to prevail in the historic ballot after stacking up votes in England and Wales, despite massive support for Remain in London and Scotland.
The direction of the battle started to become clear with a shock result in Sunderland which saw the Out camp win by 61 per cent to 39 per cent.
A surprise victory for Brexit in Swansea, where the pro-EU side had been expecting to romp home, signposted a disastrous showing for Remain across Wales.
With around a quarter of the declarations in, analysts and betting firms are now forecasting that the Leave campaign will come out on top.
The Pound – which soared in value earlier after Nigel Farage admitted he thought Brexit had lost – has nose-dived against US dollar to its lowest level for 31 years.
