Devon had the highest Google search interest in Brexit over the past week of anywhere in the country.
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.
West Devon - the constituency in which Chagford is situated in - voted to leave the EU in the Brexit Referendum in June 2016.
A strong majority of 54% voted to leave, equating to 48,000 votes. However, in stark contrast a major survey carried out by Devon Live in April found that 15% of leave voters in Devon would change their decision in a new referendum.
