Voters across the UK expressed a resounding No in the referendum on proposals to change the system for electing MPs.
More than two-thirds of those who took part in the poll opposed replacing the current first past the post method with the alternative vote system.
Out of 440 voting areas across the country, the Yes votes supporting change made up the majority in only 10 areas.
The 10 areas are: Cambridge, Camden, Edinburgh Central, Glasgow Kelvin, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Lambeth, Oxford, Southwark.
The North East were most opposed to change - with 71.95% voting No.
London, Northern Ireland and Scotland were most sympathetic to the Yes campaign - with 60% of voters in the London borough of Hackney voting Yes.
