Londoners have called for the capital of England to breakaway away from the rest of Britain following today’s vote to leave the European Union.
The city went against the national trend by voting in favour of Remain – unlike vast swathes of the north of England and some Tory heartlands in the south.
More than 2.2million London voters backed Remain compared to 1.5million in favour of Leave.
The Leave vote hit the City of London particularly hard as a day of horror saw billions wiped off FTSE 100 shares.
Frustrated Londoners have now taken to social media to ask London mayor Sadiq Khan to declare the city independent from the rest of the UK and stay in the EU.
