Harrogate narrowly votes to remain in EU referendum.

Harrogate, York and Leeds were the only three places in Yorkshire where the majority voted to stay in the EU while the rest of the region were in favour of a Leave vote.

But the margin here in the town was still narrow with 48,211 residents voting to remain - 51% - and 46,374 voting to leave - 49% - with a total of 94,653 votes cast.

The result for the Harrogate Borough came in just after 4am today June 23.

At the time, before the national result had been finalised, John Harris, Vote Remain campaign Harrogate and Knaresborough, said: “I’m delighted that Britain Stronger In has won but I’m disappointed that the margin of victory wasn’t considerably greater so we’ll just have to see how it plays out nationally.”Read more: http://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/harrogate-votes-to-remain-in-european-union-1-7980582#ixzz4CUH9Cwc4
