It is two years to the day since Britain voted to leave the EU and campaigners want ‘People’s Vote’ on final deal.

Thousands of anti-Brexit protesters are taking to the streets of London to mark the second anniversary of the vote.

It is two years to the day since Britain opted to leave the European Union but campaigners are demanding a second referendum – a so-called ‘People’s Vote’ – on the UK’s final deal.

Just 279 days before Britain leaves, key questions surrounding our customs model and future relationship are left unanswered.

The march which began at noon is expected to last until 4pm and organisers are hoping as many as 80,000 people could turn up.

Huge crowds including people of all ages have been pictured walking through the capital already, holding banners and flags.

Signs have hand-written messages on them such as “Brexit will make us all poorer,” “no goodbye based on lies” and “strength in EUnity”.

The march begins at Pall Mall in central London and will continue down Whitehall, ending in Parliament Square.

A cluster of Westminster (and grassroots) lobbying groups against Brexit have organised the event.

These include Open Britain, the European Movement, Scientists for EU and For Our Future’s Sake.
