Video: East Yorkshire boundary change referendum - the count

A whopping 96% of those polled in a boundary change referendum voted against any possible expansion by the city of Hull into towns and villages which currently lie within East Yorkshire.

There were two issues which the referendum covered - firstly around Hull City’s plans for a boundary change which would see a number of East Riding villages absorbed into Hull.
