A petition urging the Government to hold a second referendum has been launched following the historic decision for the UK to leave the EU.

The Government’s petition website crashed after a new petition emerged demanding that they hold a second referendum after the UK voted to leave the European Union.

The petition has already gained 79,000 signatures and is asking the Government to implement another referendum due to low turnout and a result that is less than 60 per cent.

“We the undersigned call upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60% based a turnout less than 75% there should be another referendum.”
