Brexit day: Celebration and regret as Britain leaves EU after 47 years

Almost four years on from the Leave vote in the 2016 referendum, the UK ceased to be a member of the bloc at 11pm on Friday.

Britain has left the European Union, bringing the curtain down on 47 years of membership.

Almost four years on from the 2016 referendum, the UK ceased to be a member of the bloc at 11pm on Friday.

Sky News marked the moment by projecting a Brexit countdown clock on the White Cliffs of Dover, which ended in the historic announcement, “The UK has left the EU.”

A light show illuminated Downing Street when the clock struck 11pm, with a mixture of celebration and regret across Britain on a landmark day.

In a video message released to mark Brexit, Prime Minister Boris Johnson referenced the divisions that have been caused by the Leave vote.

He said that while Brexit represented an “astonishing moment of hope” for many, there will be others who “feel a sense of anxiety and loss”.
