52% of students chose to remain

Results of an online poll show that Newbury College students were marginally in favour of remaining in the European Union.

Newbury College students, many of whom are not yet of voting age, were given the opportunity to express their own opinions in the lead up to the EU Referendum with the final result matching the sentiment of West Berkshire as 52% of students backed the campaign to REMAIN.

The online poll and West Berkshire results are in contrast to the national referendum outcome which has seen a 52% result for the LEAVE campaign. Newbury MP Richard Benyon, who visited the college in the lead up to the referendum, said: "I'm very pleased that West Berkshire voted remain, but Britain as a whole will now have to come to terms with the fact that it has voted to leave."
