A new poll, conducted by the Burnley Express, has seen the town's official Brexit referendum turned on its head, with more people now saying they would vote to remain in the EU.

Nine months on from the historic vote it would seem more people in Burnley have now changed their minds about Brexit.

Our online poll gathered 1,366 votes with a huge 77% voting in favour of "Remain", compared to just 23% for "Leave".

The figures are a significant about-turn when looking at the official Brexit referendum results from last June when 66.6% of voters in Burnley voted to leave the EU.
