It has been a long debate whether the UK should remain a member of the European Union or leave. Finally things are getting answered by given a choice to the people of United Kingdom.

An estimated 46,499,537 people are entitled to take part in the vote – a record number for a UK poll. Polling stations have opened at 07:00 BST and will close at 22:00 BST.

“Leave” campaigners claim that only a British exit can restore power to Parliament and control immigration. The “remain” campaign led by Prime Minister David Cameron argues that Britain is safer and richer inside the 28-nation EU.

The final day of the referendum campaign has seen the main contenders criss-crossing the country to appear at a string of eve-of-poll rallies.

David Cameron joined forces with former PM Sir John Major and Labour’s Harriet Harman for a rally in Bristol this morning.

Meanwhile, Boris Johnson has visited the famous Billingsgate Fish market as he traversed the country in a Vote Leave helicopter.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn addressed activists in central London, while planes trailing Remain banners staged a flypast at the Houses of Parliament.
