Havering’s remain campaigners do not expect victory in the borough, but do feel positives can be taken.
Sam Gould of Labour In said: “It’s looking quite good in Havering. Turnout I think will be about 65 to 70 per cent.
“For the most Eurosceptic area in the country - that’s not what the votes are saying. It looks like leave will be in front but this will not be the area with the biggest leave vote in the country.”
Labour Cllr Keith Darvill who has also campaigned for remain was not as positive about the campaign’s prospects locally.
He said: “I do not think we are going to do particularly well I think the people in Havering will be voting for Brexit sadly, but I’m confident UK wide that the remain will win.
