Brexit: Views from Blaenau Gwent on why EU was rejected

In Blaenau Gwent, 62% of people voted for Britain to leave the EU.

The local unemployment rate is about 9% - higher than the Welsh average.

For those working, average wages in the county are £433.60 - around £40 less than the Welsh average and nearly £100 less than the British average.

But public money has been poured in from the Welsh Government, the European Union and Blaenau Gwent council, with a £350m regeneration project on the site of the old steelworks.
