VOTERS across Oxfordshire want a second Brexit referendum by 61 to 39 per cent, new data suggests.

Nearly three quarters of voters in Oxford East back the idea, with support in each of the county's five other seats hovering at around 60 per cent.

71 per cent of Oxford East residents support a new vote, compared to 57 per cent in Witney, where county support is lowest, Right To Vote's survey says.

MPs voted to reject the idea of a second referendum during 'indicative votes' earlier this week, but many suggest that another referendum or a general election may be the only way to break the deadlock.

According to the data, which surveyed 9,500 people nationwide, support in Wantage has risen by one per cent in a month, to 59 per cent.

Oxford Mail:

Its Conservative MP Ed Vaizey recently moved towards backing another vote, meaning the county's representatives are split evenly between Mr Vaizey and Oxford's MPs and three Conservatives representing more rural seats.

Banbury, the only other seat previously surveyed, has seen support rise two per cent in the same period, meaning that – like in Henley – 58 per cent of voters back another referendum.

That mirrors support levels nationwide, according to the data, despite Oxfordshire being seen as one of the most pro-remain areas in the country.

Support is noticeably higher in Oxford. In Oxford West and Abingdon, where one of the most vocal supporters of a second referendum, Layla Moran, sits, support is at 66 per cent.

The UK is due to leave the EU with no-deal a week today.

Dominic Grieve MP, a co-founder of the centre-right group Right to Vote said: “We need a meaningful delay to agree a practical and credible proposal which can be put to the people for a final say. What started with the people should end with the people."

The government is against another vote.

Health secretary Matthew Hancock said: "I am against it and my personal view is it is wrong and it doesn't help us to deliver Brexit.

"The point here is to respect the result of a referendum, not to challenge the result of the referendum with another referendum."
