ORGANISERS claim around 700,000 anti-Brexit protesters gathered for a march through central London yesterday, calling for a fresh referendum.

The march set off from Park Lane and ended with a rally in Parliament Square.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan was among those who spoke in the square, along with representatives from the main political parties.

Celebrity attendees included Steve Coogan, Delia Smith and Deborah Meaden.

Prime Minister Theresa May has already ruled out a vote on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations, saying that the decision by the British people two years ago should be respected and implemented.

Mayor Sadiq Khan said: “What’s really important is that those that say that a public vote is undemocratic, is unpatriotic, realise that in fact, the exact opposite is the truth.

“What could be more democratic, what could be more British, than trusting the judgement of the British people?”

The UK is scheduled to leave the EU on 29 March 2019, under the terms of the two-year Article 50 process.
