Voters happy to get drenched as they queue in the rain to vote in the EU referendum


With heavy rain and flooding hitting the South, there were fears turnout for the EU referendum could be hit.

But those fears could have been overstated if reports on social media of queues at polling stations are anything to go by.

The majority of posts are coming from London polling stations, pointing to a potentially good turnout in the capital.

In other parts of the UK, some are tip-toeing around floods to get to their polling station.

Many people are saying this is the first time they have ever needed to queue at their local polling station.

Keep going, intrepid voters - polling closes at 10pm.
