HUNDREDS of Stroud campaigners descended on London to take part in an anti-Brexit march.

According to the Stroud4Europe Facebook group, more than 200 residents travelled to the capital on Saturday.

They joined supporters of the "People's Vote" campaign from all over the UK, who gathered in central London to call for a "final say" vote on the new Brexit deal.

The march took place just before MPs voted in favour of an amendment withholding approval of 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 the prime minister to comply with the EU Withdrawal (No. 2) Act, known as the ‘Benn Act’, requiring him to seek a Brexit extension.

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