EGRANT: (studio to 08 -00 -55”): Today, in a historic referendum across the UK, the public went to polling stations to decide whether the UK was to remain in or leave the European Union (short pause). This morning at 5 am, the country voted to leave by a majority 53. 7%. We take a snapshot of what the people of what Swansea thought coming out of the polling stations. Tape (runs 20 seconds to 08 -01 -15”): Reporter: It’s 9. 45 pm, the polls are almost closed, may I ask how you voted and why? Member of the Public 1: I don’t know much but I voted remain. I think it’s a big decision for the whole country but also for the whole of Luton. There a lot of small businesses in the industrial estate where I work that rely on trade with Europe. It would concern me these businesses could be affected. Reporter: Can I ask how you voted? Member of the Public 2: I was always a leaver, Wales is separate in many ways, this won’t make any difference Emma Grant: Head to the Wave online for more up to date information.
