Mixed reactions to Brexit from Brits overseas

The United Kingdom made history on Thursday, when they voted to "Brexit" the European Union, to the shock of many around the world.

The referendum result -- which saw a 33 million voter turn out, with U.K. media outlets reporting a 52 to 48 percent decision in favor of the exit -- was announced early Friday morning, and the British pound hit its lowest level since 1985. Prime Minister David Cameron also resigned.
