France calls EMERGENCY meeting following historic Brexit vote amid calls for FREXIT

FRENCH president Francois Hollande has called an emergency meeting following Britain’s decision to leave the European Union as calls for a Frexit heightened.

Ministers in the French Government met before 8am (UK time) at an emergency meeting chaired by Hollande to discuss its reponse to the UK’s decison to untangle itself from the 28-nation bloc.

The Leave camp officially passed the winning mark just after six o’clock this morning as voters demanded Britain leave Europe.

Far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen has already called for an EU referendum after she threw her weight behind the Brexit camp.

This morning she repeated her previous calls for a “Frexit” following the historic vote – which saw the Leave campaign win more than 52 per cent of the votes.
