What is the EU? Google searchers ask hours after Brexit

Hours after the UK voted to leave the European Union, "What is the EU?" became the second top UK Google search on the issue.

The top five search queries were:

  • "What does it mean to leave the EU?"
  • "What is the EU?"
  • "Which countries are in the EU?"
  • "What will happen now we've left the EU?"
  • "How many countries are in the EU?"

The questions formed the top Google searches conducted on the EU since the official Brexit result was announced.
