39% of people who voted to remain in the EU would be "upset" if their child married a Leave supporter, a survey has suggested.

The YouGov poll of 2,380 people found more than one in 10 (11%) of Remainers would describe themselves as "very upset" if their offspring hooked up with a Brexiteer.

A further 28% said they would be "somewhat upset" with such a match.

Only 11% of Leave voters said they would be in any way upset if their child married a pro-EU partner.

The poll also found that 11% of Labour supporters would be "very upset" if their child married a Tory, while just 2% of Conservatives said they would be similarly aggrieved if the positions were reversed.

Some 28% of Labour supporters and 17% of Tories said they "would not consider" dating someone from the other political party.

The survey also claimed that 3% of people could not remember how they voted in the EU referendum three years ago.
