Figures released by YouGov show people over 65+ years-old were the strongest voters in favour of leaving the European Union (EU).

The figures show how different ages voted in the UK with 34 per cent of 18-24 year-olds choosing to leave compared to 65 per cent of 75-79 year-olds.

The figures for other ages voting to leave were 36 per cent for 25-29 year-olds, 39 per cent for 30-34 year-olds, 42 per cent for 35-39 year-olds, 49 per cent for 40-44 year-olds, 52 per cent for 50-54 year-olds, 55 per cent for 55-59 year-olds, 57 percent for 60-64 year-olds, 60 per cent of 65-69 year-olds, 62 per cent of 70-74 year-olds, 65 per cent of 75-79 year-olds, 63 per cent for 80-84 year-olds, 65 per cent for 85+ year-olds.

YouGov is an international internet-based market research firm, headquartered in the UK.

In a statement on the YouGov website, it said: “Our current headline estimate of the result of the referendum is that Leave will win 51 per cent of the vote. This is close enough that we cannot be very confident of the election result: the model puts a 95% chance of a result between 48 and 53.”
