The partisan national press made a last-ditch bid to persuade voters in the EU referendum today as Ofcom rules barred broadcasters from covering the campaign until the polls close.
The Daily Express invoked the spirit of Lord Kitchener with its front-page today. The Sun, Daily Mirror and Telegraph also opted for campaigning poster front pages.
Over the last month Press Gazette analysis has shown that pro-Brexit front pages have far outweighed pro-Remain front-page stories in the national press, with the three market-leading national dailies (the Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail and The Sun) all strongly favouring Leave.
However a greater number of titles have favoured Remain.
