21:13 Round-up of storm-hit polling stations

Some polling stations in south-east England had to close earlier following heavy rain throughout Wednesday night and Thursday.

Kingston upon Thames Council in south-west London had to move two voting locations due to flooding, and a polling station in Barking and Dagenham, east London, was shut because of a burst water main.

Barking and Dagenham Council apologised to voters and said the polling station had been relocated to two sites within walking distance.

One polling station in Dover experienced a power cut due to the storms and was running on a generator for much of the day.

    Do you think the torrential incessant rain the uk has suffered of late was engineered to put people off voting? I know they use that tactic but I think they will just fix the result the way they want it like they fixed the result of the last general election.
    Nothing in politics is ever left to chance. Everything is carefully planned way ahead and this referendum is no exception. They already know what the result is going to be and all plans consistent with that result are already in place and have been for a long time.
    Camerons speech is ready and prepared and he has had plenty time to rehearse it.
    After the outcry at the last general election when the polls showed a clear majority labour win then all of a sudden a huge change around and the cons win. The public demanded an investigation. The government then realised the public are not as stupid as thought so used the “too close to call” pun this time so when they announce a ‘Remain Win’ the public will think it was a close call. No way – it’ll be fixed as always.
