A survey of 14,000 people after they had voted by former Conservative donor Lord Ashcroft found that two-thirds of 18- to 24-year-olds cast their ballots for Mr Corbyn’s party.
Meanwhile more than half of those aged 25 to 34 opted for Labour.
The surprise surge of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party in the general election has been explained by a significant rise in youth turnout – with experts saying 18 to 24-year-old voters could have turned a number of key constituencies red.
Though no official age breakdown of voters has been calculated figures point to a significant increase in turnout among young people as well as a significant increase in overall turnout in university towns.
Student-heavy constituencies were among the top 22 constituencies that saw the highest increase in overall turnout.
