However, Doncaster’s 2018 figure is down on the 69% who voted Leave at the referendum, showing that hundreds of voters in Doncaster would change their minds and now back remaining in Europe.

Pollsters from Survation carried out extensive research, talking to 20,000 people across the UK to look at what would happen if Theresa May called a snap Brexit vote tomorrow – something she's already ruled out on several occasions.

The results were revealed on Channel 4 in a live debate show, Brexit: What the Nation Really Thinks, on Monday.

Analysis carried out by the polling company showed that 105 council areas that voted Leave in 2016 would now vote Remain.

Since the referendum, support for leaving the EU has fallen most sharply in local authorities that saw the highest vote shares for leave, Survation said.
