About 60% of people in Jersey and Guernsey would vote for Britain to remain in the European Union in the event of a referendum, according to a recent survey.
The survey - carried out by Island Global Research - was completed by 5,842 residents in the three Crown Dependencies - Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man.
The aim of the survey was to discover what people thought about Brexit and to learn what they are most worried about.
Only island residents who had lived in the UK within the past 15 years of the referendum vote on 23 June 2016 were eligible to vote.
