ROUGH CUT - SUBTITLED (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Meet the residents of Blackpool, a seaside town in northern England. Most of them are elderly and working class. 2 out of 3 Blackpool residents voted for Britain to leave the EU on June 23. (SOUNDBITE) (English) STEVE MEYER, FISHMONGER SAYING: "As you see in the referendum the southern people, mostly, London especially, the metropolitan, they all voted to stay. I think it's the haves and the have-nots. It's like a peasant revolt, the working class and the lower classes have said 'enough is enough' and we want our own borders and our own say on the criminals." The results surprised Britain - 48 percent voted to remain in the EU, 52 percent voted to leave.
