Hundreds of Cotswolds campaigners descended on London yesterday to join an anti-Brexit march.

According to the Cotswolds4Europe Facebook group, residents from Cirencester, Burford and Malmesbury travelled to the capital.

Over 800 people from Gloucestershire marched on Parliament Square under the banner 'Together For A Final Say'.

The march took place just before MPs voted in favour of an amendment withholding approval of the PM Boris Johnson's Brexit deal until legislation to implement it is in place.

The amendment tabled by former Cabinet minister Sir Oliver Letwin was intended to force him to comply with the so-called Benn Act requiring him to seek a Brexit extension.

The Benn Act sets a deadline of 11pm on Saturday for the Prime Minister to get a deal if the UK is to leave on October 31, otherwise he is supposed to seek an extension.

The result was greeted by loud cheers by the crowd assembled outside the Palace of Westminster in Parliament Square.
