BBC:

There has been a dramatic fall in the value of the pound as the strength of the UK’s vote to leave the EU emerged.

At one stage it hit $1.3305, a fall of more than 10%, and a low not seen since 1985.

Before the results started to come in, the pound had risen as high as $1.50, as traders bet on a Remain victory.

But following early strong Leave votes in north-east England it tumbled to $1.43 and then took another dive after 03:00 BST as Leave maintained its lead.

The move in sterling is the biggest one-day fall ever seen and London’ main share index, the FTSE 100, is expected to open sharply lower, with indications of a fall of around 7%.

Against the euro, the pound dropped 7% to around €1.2085.

Currency traders say these moves are more extreme than those seen during the financial crisis of 2008.

“Never seen anything like it. These are once-in-a-lifetime moves, bigger than Lehmans and Black Wednesday, and we haven’t even had the result yet,” said Joe Rundle, head of trading at ETX Capital.

“It’s worth noting that trading desks are not fully staffed and these are only the initial reactions,” he added.

“We’re waiting for the big money to crank into action over the coming days and even weeks, which will likely exert further downward pressure on sterling.”

Around midnight sterling had risen to $1.50 after leading Leave campaigner Nigel Farage said it looked as though Remain had “edged” the vote.

But those gains were short lived as the first results showed surprisingly strong votes to leave the EU.

As for shares, the markets are pointing to a 8% slump when the FTSE 100 opens on Friday.

In Tokyo the Nikkei 225 has fallen by more than 8% with the yen up 5% as investors piled into the Japanese currency which is seen as a safe-haven.

In commodities, the price of gold jumped nearly 7% to $1,348.27 an ounce.
