Daily Brexit Update: Thursday 2nd August
According to a new report, Devon has Googled about Brexit more than anywhere else in the country.
And the most Googled term is: 'What is Brexit'?.
"Exclusive data provided by Google reveals that between the 23 and the 29 of July Chagford searched for Brexit more than any other UK community."
Behind them came Cambridge, Wembley and Eastbourne says the report.
