With one year to go until Britain starts to leave the European Union, we asked our readers how they would vote in a referendum today.
At the time of writing, we had over 2,800 people vote in our online poll on our story. Back in 2016, the country as a whole voted to leave 51.9pc to 48.1pc, sparking the Brexit process that we are in today.
However, our reader results show that 69pc would now vote to remain, while 31pc would vote to leave the EU.
People also left comments on our Facebook page regarding the idea of a second referendum and how they would vote now:
Gary Woolston: 'Another vote is not needed, country has spoken, honour it now!'
Tracey Cosford: 'You can't keep have referendums until the vote goes your way...that simply devalues the whole democratic system.'
