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.

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.

I honestly didn’t think we'd make that decision, it's a day of deep reflection today. We've always said from the beginning that we don't see our UK investments being affected but I can't speak for future investments.

David Cameron: "The country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction"

Kimberley Metcalfe

BBC Local Live, Hull and East Yorkshire

Prime Minister David Cameron has resigned.

He'll stay in the post for the coming weeks and months but would like a new leader take over in time for the Conservative party conference in the Autumn.

He said he would leave it to his successor to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which kicks off the two-year process of negotiating a new trade relationship with the UK's former partners.

I will do everything I can as Prime Minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months, but I don't think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination."
