Figures released today - which show a ward-by-ward breakdown of how people voted in Norwich - also reveal that 60pc of people in the wards in Clive Lewis' Norwich South constituency voted to remain.

The only ward in his constituency which is not part of the Norwich City Council area, for which figures are available, is New Costessey.

The four wards in the Norwich City Council area which are in Norwich North MP Chloe Smith's constituency (Catton Grove, Crome, Mile Cross and Sewell) voted by 51pc to leave the European Union. She returned from maternity leave last week to vote for the Brexit bill. Figures for how the rest of her constituency voted in the Broadland District Council area are not available. But the Broadland local authority area as a whole backed a vote to leave by 54.4pc,

The figures also show that five out of the 13 Norwich City Council wards backed a vote to leave.
