    A short while ago I spoke to UK chief executive of Siemens Jürgen Maier. 

    He said the majority leave vote came as a surprise, but was confident that operations and production of blades at the Hull factory will go ahead as planned. 

    However, there are concerns that exporting will now be much harder than anticipated.

  14. Leave vote highlights rift between North and London

    Danny Savage

    North of England correspondent

    The north of England has roared back at London. This result underlines the disconnect between the capital and the outlying parts of England. It showed in the results - London overwhelmingly In, huge parts of the North Out. 

    For many this wasn't just about Europe, it was about a metropolitan elite telling them what to do. And then rebelling against it. It may or may not be the right decision but this was people saying, "we've had enough". 

    What may be the case is that some people voted against the establishment rather than the EU. This vote came at a time when the disconnect with London is huge.

    As was said during the campaign, the Remain argument was accused of being, "too much Hampstead, not enough Hull". Now is the summer of our discontent.
