The Electoral Commission has launched an urgent inquiry as tens of thousands of people were unable to vote last night after polling stations were unable to cope with a late surge.
There were chaotic scenes in towns and cities including London, Sheffield, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham and Bristol as polling stations failed dismally to cope with the high turnout.
Senior politicians said the fiasco made Britain seem like a Third World country.
There was confusion at some polling stations after staff closed the door in the faces of people who had been queuing for hours. While at others, voters were allowed in past the 10pm deadline.
Police were called in to remove people who protested when they were not allowed to cast their ballot.
