Many claim the historic vote is too close to call - but Otto the psychic octopus is in no doubt.

The clairvoyant cephalopod, who lives at Manchester Sea Life Centre, has been using lego to make predictions in her tank.

Two Lego blocks, one with Leave and one with Remain were placed in front of Otto to cast her vote. There was no wavering – she thinks Britain will remain in the EU after tomorrow’s vote.

Dan McLaughlan, Curator at Sea Life Manchester said: “Otto has thrived and developed into a fun loving and charismatic creature.

“She has continued to enjoy using her interactive skills for the various predictions so now we’ll just have to see if her next vote is correct.”
