Britain will leave the European Union after 51.9% of people opted to vote Leave during the referendum.

Large parts of rural England and Wales have swung the vote in favour of Brexit, triggering a storm of activity amongst the political classes.

Unsurprisingly, the fallout following the announcement has already started; Nigel Farage has backtracked on promises that £350 million will be handed to the NHS, while the value of the pound has slumped to a 31-year low on currency markets.

Here are the best tweets:
