A total of 32,064 voted for the UK to stay in the EU with 8,905 backing Brexit.

Northern Ireland is treated as one electoral area in the overall UK result, but the count is being broken down across its 18 constituencies, with those separate outcomes added together for the regional result.

The Northern Ireland result is expected around 4am.
