L is for Leave

So the referendum happened. I have no idea how 'Springhill' voted outside the immediate family but the data for the Rossendale borough area was:

Leave 60.7 Remain 39.3, a slightly higher leave % than the north west as a whole (53%) but behind surrounding boroughs, particularly Burnley (66.6) and Hyndburn (66.2%).

Turnout was 72.4%, again pretty comparable with local areas.

These figures are roughly the reverse of those in the 1975 referendum.

The BBC have summarised this in their series of
maps.
