LONDON, June 24. /TASS/. Most citizens of Sunderland, in northeast England, voted in favor of a British exit from the European Union, a local election commission has said.

Some 61% of voters chose "Leave" and another 39% opted for "Remain" at Thursday’s referendum.

Sunderland, with a population of 174,000, became the first out of five counting areas where the final results have been received to back Brexit.

The UK’s sterling plunged from $1.50 to $1.44 on that news.

Shortly after the referendum, YouGov's poll said most Britons - 52% - voted to stay in the European Union against 48% to leave. The final outcome is expected at around 0600 GMT.
