After months of campaigning from both the Vote Leave and Vote Remain camps, the public has decided that we want to leave the EU.
BBC forecasts show that Vote Leave has won the referendum by 52% to 48%, with around 70% of the votes counted. ITV News also projects a Vote Leave win following analysis of the votes.
The question on everyone's lips is this: what happens now?
Well, first of all it's not an automatic process. Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty will soon be triggered, which is basically the process of a member country leaving the EU. There is a two-year negotiating period as negotiations in Brussels begin to decide the future relationship between the EU and Britain.
