    The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and its subsidiary National Westminster Bank (Natwest) have suspended euro sales both online and in the offices due to heightened demand following the UK's decision to leave the European Union, media reported Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Pound sterling is at its lowest in 30 years, The Financial Times reported, citing a RBS spokesperson, who said the sales were expected to return to the norm on Monday.

    On Thursday, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union. According to the final results, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, decided to support Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.
