By Aaron Humes: More than 16 million Britons have voted in favor of leaving the European Union in a referendum held on Thursday.
While the vote is fairly close, a 52 percent majority, according to the BBC, voted against staying.
Most of the anti-EU vote came from outside London and in Wales, with Scotland and Northern Ireland voting in sizable majority to stay.
The value of the British pound plummeted to a three-decade low as financial markets absorbed the news, the New York Times reported.
The BBC says the country cannot leave immediately, with a two-year negotiation process expected.
Britons were thought to be tired of foreign control and swayed by promises of greater control over their own affairs.
