NEW evidence has revealed investors are shifting tens of billions of Pounds out of British assets due to the upcoming EU referendum.
Around £65bn left the UK or was converted into another currency between March and April, the fastest rate since the 2009 financial crisis.
The figures have been published by the Bank of England and are the first proof of capital flight from the UK.
Capital flight describes when vast amounts of money rapidly leave a country due to fears of economic instability.
From November to April, £77bn left the sterling system – the figure for the previous six months was just £2bn.
The Bank of England has consistently warned of stark economic consequences in the event of Brexit.
The British public go to the polls on June 23.
